This is in line with the government’s efforts to prevent and contain the spread of coronavirus which has killed thousands around the world.
So far, Ghana has recorded nine confirmed cases of the virus. In the wake of that, President Akufo-Addo has ordered the closure of all schools and universities in the country as part of measures to stem the tide of coronavirus cases.
There is also suspension on public gathering as well as other stringent travel measures to curb the spread.
The beauty industry in Ghana is seen as one of the key areas of society that has a risk of spreading the virus due to the nature of working in that industry.
According to a message available to News-One from Make-Up Ghana, organisers of the prestigious Ghana Make-Up Award, beauticians should consider suspending their bookings.
However, it added that if the booking is critical, then stakeholders must exercise the most extreme caution in dealing with their clients.
“We urge all beauty practitioners to suspend all booking or adopt the use of face masks and gloves if the booking is critical. Use alcohol-based cleansers to disinfect brushes, eyeliners, pencils etc as well as usage of disposal applicators,” the message added.
