Whiles SHS 2 and JHS 2 students will go back on October 5th, 2020. Nana Addo also said pubs, beaches, and cinemas would remain closed until further notice.
The President said the decision of the gradual reopening of all schools was taken by the Government after further consultations by the Ghana Education Service (GES).

“These are a necessary price to pay in our efforts to protect the lives of our children, as well as to limit and contain the spread of the virus in our country,” he said.
Meanwhile, all final year students of SHS are still writing their final exit examinations, as announced in the 15th update of the President, while the JHS three students are billed to start their final papers on Monday, September 14, to Friday, September 18.
