It is a mandatory requirement for landlords to require for a COVID-19 status of all foreigners before renting out properties to them.
This was disclosed by the Works and Housing Minister, Samuel Atta Akyea who was speaking during a press briefing on Tuesday, April 28th 2020.
“Landlords must also be wary of potential tenants from foreign countries. It is very mandatory to insist that without a COVID-19 negative clearance the landlord should not rent out the premises", the Works and Housing Minister said.
Mr. Atta Akyea also added, "we all know that this pandemic has been imported so be careful that in the name of dollars you do not go and bring in a foreigner who hasn’t gotten clearance that he or she is not infected by the disease to come and live in the premises.
"I need not remind you that the virus is an importation from foreigners and those who had contacts with them prior to the lockdown” he said.
