A team of military officers and metropolitan officials on Thursday embarked on public education to create awareness on the need to wear nose mask before entering the Central Business District from Monday July 20.
An official explained to the Ghana News Agency that all persons who would move around the city of Accra must adhere to the protocols due to the high cases of COVID-19 being recorded.
He said the team would also monitor and ensure that market centres within the Accra Metropolis were kept clean.
The team would arrest persons who violate the laws and lock up shops of traders operating in filthy environments during the inspection.
