Following encouraging reports by Cabinet Sub-Committee on COVID-19 and in consultation with the National Health Emergency Committee, His Excellency President Adama Barrow has declared all land and sea borders of The Gambia open with immediate effect, according to missive from the Office of Government Spokesperson.
