The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced it is closing its offices “until further notice” because of Coronavirus concerns.

“Members of the GFA including clubs, Regional Football Associations are being reminded to use the online systems of the GFA (email, Registration System – FIFA Connect) to communicate with the Secretariat until the offices reopen,” the GFA said in a statement.

The GFA will continue to engage with the Ministry of Health and Ghana Health Service on the next steps and inform our staff and stakeholders accordingly of any changes.

Ghana has confirmed 11 cases of the Covid-19 disease in the last few days.

Though no death has been recorded, health officials say the patients are in stable condition.

The country has denied entry for 24 Chinese nationals and a German on Tuesday due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Immigration officials have disclosed.

The FA said its latest directive is “part of the precautionary measures being undertaken by the Executive Council of the GFA to curb the spread of the pandemic.”

The GFA has also warned clubs to stop training “with immediate effect” and fully respect the directive from President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo–Addo.
