In this period of the rapid rise in COVID-19 cases and incessant disregard for the safety protocols, the National Commission for Civic Education, NCCE has reminded the general public to strictly adhere to the safety protocols. During a civic education activity at Sunny International School by the Korle-Klottey Municipal Office of NCCE, students were alerted of the COVID-19 era and entreated to adhere to the mandatory wearing of face Mask, use of alcohol-based sanitizer, social distancing, and regular hand washing under running water with soap.
Speaking to the students, Nana Kwesi Boateng a Civic Education Officer pleaded with the students to stay home if they don't have anything important to do outside, “this is not the time to be visiting friends" he added. Mr. Boateng also encouraged students to eat immunity-boosting foods, exercise regularly, drink a lot of water, and have enough sleep.
He urged the students not to exchange masks, since it’s a bad practice that can help spread the virus. He charged them to play their part in fighting the pandemic saying the future of Ghana is in their hands and together let’s help curb the disease.
