Covid-19 Lockdown: Jubilee House Empty As Workers Told To Work From Home
The Jubilee House, the seat of Ghana’s presidency is relatively empty as the lockdown kicked off today [Monday].
Citi News’ Sammy Wiafe reported that the usual buzz that characterises activities at the Jubilee House is lost today as the majority of workers have been asked to work from home.
The office of the President, Vice-President and Chief of Staff were however operational.
Only Senior Presidential staffers and key civil servants have been asked to report to work during this period.
The situation was not different at the Ministries.
The offices are deserted with only security personnel and key officials seen at work.
Ghana has begun a partial lockdown of Accra, Tema, Kumasi and Kasoa as part of measures to fight the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The affected areas observing the lockdown are some of the most densely populated in Ghana.
During the two-week partial lockdown, citizens in affected areas are advised to only leave their homes in search of essential items or activities.
