The Greater Accra Regional Security Council (REGSEG) has eased restrictions on beaches in Accra.

The Council had barred recreational visits to the beaches in the region from December 24 as part of the festivities.

Government said it was in line with measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 as the country experiences a fourth wave.

Stakeholders expressed concern over the direct saying it cost them their livelihoods, especially when the previous year suffered a similar fate due to the pandemic.

Subsequently, revellers who turned up at La Beach were turned away by security agencies stationed at the gate.

But in a review meeting, the REGSEC announced that people who intend to access the beaches in Accra must show proof of vaccination or be willing to be vaccinated.

Addressing stakeholders, Regional Minister, Henry Quartey revealed that officials from the Ghana Health Service (GHS) are being deployed to implement the directive.

He added that security personnel will also be deployed to help enforce the policy.
