The President, Nana Akufo-Addo is on a 14-day self-isolation after getting exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

This was contained in a statement dated July 4, 2020, and signed by the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.

"On the advice of doctors, the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is from today, July 4, 2020, taking a fourteen (14) day precautionary self-isolation measure in compliance with COVID-19 protocols," the statement added.

The statement noted that "the President has elected to do so after at least one person within his close circle tested positive for COVID-19 today."

The statement said, although President Akufo-Addo has tested negative for the virus, he has still decided to self-isolate "out of the abundance of caution."

"The President will during this precautionary self-isolation period, be working from the Presidential
Villa at the Jubilee House, Accra," the statement added.
 
A number of government appointees have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last few weeks.

A Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Carlos Ahenkorah who also tested positive for the virus resigned because he visited a voter registration centre, contrary to advice by his doctor to self-isolate.
