In an attempt to slow down the spread of the novel coronavirus in the country, the government has made wearing face masks mandatory in public spaces, with citizens facing a possible fine if caught without one.
As part of the measures to curb the spread of the virus, President Akufo-Addo signed an Executive Instrument criminalizing non-wearing of face mask in public places across the country, with offenders facing a jail term of up to 10 years or a fine of GH¢12,000-GH¢ 60,000 or both.
