Following restrictions from recent travel protocols, the only admissible travellers into Ghana were Ghanaians and foreign nationals with residence permits in Ghana.

These persons were to engage in a mandatory self-quarantine for 14 days.

The President also announced the closure of the country’s border effective midnight on Sunday.

“All our borders; by land, sea and air, will be closed to human traffic for the next two weeks beginning midnight on Sunday,” he added in the address.
