Dodowa Market in the Shai- Osudoku District of Accra to be closed for a period of one week over disregard of social distance
The activities of the market will come to a halt from Monday April 20 to Saturday, April 27,2020.
In a statement from the Shai-Osuduko District Committee, social distance which was instituted in the market to help stop the spread of coronavirus is not being observed in Dodowa market.
“The measures instituted to maintain social distancing among other protocols to contain the spread of the COVID-19 in the Dodowa market are not yielding the intended results.”
The statement also noted that, “Even though the market women are adhering to the shift system announced in our previous measures issued to decongest the market, it has been observed that the closure of markets in the La Nkwantanang and other municipalities has led to heavy and uncontrollable patronage of the Dodowa market raising serious concerns and therefore defeating the intended purpose of the shift system.”
However, operations will resume on Monday, April 28,2020.
