The South African National Defence Force (SANDF), together with other stakeholders such as Western Cape Government Health, South African Police Services (SAPS), and municipal officials have embarked on a combined initiative to support the COVID-19 Awareness Programme in the Garden Route. This is an intergovernmental initiative that was arranged as part of the Western Cape Government’s Hotspot Strategy.
SANDF will move through Garden Route towns doing COVID-19 awareness education as well as Level 2 lockdown enforcement with SAPS.
SANDF medical health services will provide health screenings and referral if necessary. The team is currently in Mossel Bay.
