The Tain District Assembly in compliance with the directive from the Bono Regional Security Council (RESEC) has temporally banned all weekly marketing activities in the district as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID 19 in the region.
The reason behind the temporal closure of the markets on market days in the district is to ensure strict adherence to social distancing as well as respecting the ban on social gathering in order to prevent the spread of the disease in the district.
However, traders are encouraged to sell every day and buyers are advised also to buy everyday to avoid large crowds at the markets as had always been in the case.
The Assembly in its quest to avert the spread of the COVID 19 pandemic had put in place numerous measures such as the supply of veronica buckets and other sanitary items to be placed at vantage points in the district and disinfection of markets and other public places in the district.
The District Chief Executive, Madam Charity Akua Foriwaa Dwommoh has therefore appealed to the general public to corporate with the Assembly to help curb the novel coronavirus Disease in the District.
