UG resumes operation after lockdown lifting, introduces compulsory nose masks for workers

“All employees are required to wear face masks at work,” Registrar, Mercy Haizel-Ashia says

The University of Ghana has introduced a compulsory face mask-wearing for “all employees” effective Tuesday.

“All employees are required to wear face masks at work,” a statement signed by the Registrar, Mercy Haizel-Ashia and sighted by read.

The Registrar has directed the various units of the school to “use petty cash to buy hand sanitizers and masks for the use of employees who are required to be at work, until such time that these are supplied by the University.”

“Additional safety measures for staff who have to be at work are being pursued and will be communicated to relevant Unit Heads in due course,” the statement continued.

It will be recalled that the University of Ghana had one of its students contracting the coronavirus in the latter part of March leading to the decision to suspend lectures.

This was followed by the President’s directive for all public and private schools to be closed down due to the rapid spread of the disease.

Following President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s decision to lift the three-week lockdown of some four cities, the University will resume operation effective Tuesday.

“Management deems it proper, for the avoidance of doubt, to restate that essential service providers in the University are required to be at work,” the Registrar said.
