The Western Cape has recorded an additional six COVID-19 deaths-bringing the total number of deaths from the virus in the province to 58. We send our condolences to those who have lost their loved ones.

Most successful day of testing:

Yesterday, the province recorded a record number of tests- with 4059 completed in a 24-hour period. Focused testing and screening, conducted at hotspots, or in pockets of infection are key in our fight to flatten the curve and to stop the spread. This cannot however be achieved through testing alone, and requires the buy in and help of everyone in society.

It is still necessary for people to stay home in line with the regulation four guidelines, to wash their hands and to practice social distancing.

Level four lockdown:

Tomorrow, many more residents will be returning to work for the first time since the start of the lockdown. We urge those returning to work and businesses that will be re-opening to make hygiene and safety their number one priority. The use of cloth masks is mandatory and social distancing must be observed. The Western Cape Departments of Health, Economic Opportunities and Agriculture are all currently working on developing protocols for various sectors, which will be communicated with them soon.

Businesses looking for support and advice on the level four lockdown regulations and what they mean for them, can email supportbusiness@wesgro.co.za.
