Let’s continue to stay safe and move forward as school holiday draws to a close

As we near the end of the school holidays, I call on all residents to continue to stay safe and move forward. We can do this by washing and sanitizing our hands regularly, wearing our masks correctly and maintaining a safe social distance. 

At the same time, we must continue to avoid the 3 Cs which include crowded spaces, close contact and confined spaces. If you are meeting with friends and family over the weekend, please keep gatherings short, small and outdoors, where possible. 

We also call on residents to help those over 60 to register on the EVDS system, which can be found at: https://vaccine.enroll.health.gov.za/ 

Should you need assistance with the registration process, do not hesitate to visit www.sacoronavirus.co.za/evds/support/ or call our call centre on 0860 142 142.
