George Municipality loses official to Covid-19

Media Statement:  George Municipality loses official to Covid-19
Issued Friday 11 June @ 14h30

George Municipality would today like to advise the public that we are distressed to announce that one of our officials  who tested positive to Covid-19, has lost the valiant battle on Thursday 11 June.
The Municipal Manager, Trevor Botha expressed his shock at the news and offered condolences to the family of the deceased.  The official has worked at the George Municipality for the past 16 years and will be sorely missed.

“ The safety of our staff is our highest priority and George Municipality has  implemented all of the social distancing protocols and work methods required, to ensure that we adhere to the current pandemic related
health regulations and rules,” said Mr Botha.

Executive Mayor,  Leon van Wyk on hearing the news during a scheduled e-MAYCO meeting yesterday, immediately extended the sympathy of the George Council to the family, friends and colleagues of the deceased.

“ This is indeed a sad day for George Municipality to lose an official to this pandemic. I remain very concerned for our officials  who have continued to work on the frontline from the beginning of lockdown, and would
like to remind our officials and the public that  they must continue to adhere to all of the Covid-19 safety protocols, whether at home or at work.”

 

George Municipality requests  that the privacy of the official and that of the family, is taken into consideration at all times during this difficult period.
