Premier Winde calls on residents to be safe over the weekend

We have now left the peak of the third wave, with new infections continuing to decrease sharply and active cases having now dipped below 30 000.

While this is welcomed, we must continue to be vigilant, particularly as we approach the weekend.

Let’s continue to wash and sanitise our hands regularly, wear our masks correctly, maintain a safe social distance from others and avoid large crowds.

It is also important that we protect ourselves and those around us by making use of our vaccine opportunity.

By continuing to practice these important measures, we will remain on-track to exit the third wave.
