Premier Winde urges residents to stay safe over the weekend

This weekend, I urge each and every single resident to take the necessary precautions to stop the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of themselves and their loved ones. 

During my weekly digital press conference yesterday, it was highlighted that there is a week-on-week increase in COVID-19 infections across the province and that we are approaching a third wave. 

We can however delay its onset and flatten the curve by continuing to practice the lifesaving non-pharmaceutical interventions that we have learnt over the past year. 

These include: 

  • Washing and sanitising our hands regularly;
  • Maintaining a safe social distance from others; and
  • Wearing your mask correctly.

If you are meeting up with family and friends over the weekend, it is important that you keep these gatherings short, outside and small. 

I understand that during these colder and wetter months, it may not be possible to meet outside. If this is the case, you must ensure that your meeting place is not crowded, confined or in close contact, with good ventilation.

By adhering to these important steps, we will save both lives and livelihoods. 

Western Cape on-track to rollout more vaccine sites from Monday, 7 June

To date, we have rolled a successful vaccine plan, having exceeded daily and weekly vaccines targets. I am pleased to note that from Monday, 7 June, additional sites will come online through our scale-up approach. 

This coming week, the Department will increase the number of vaccination sites in the province to 154. Preparations for vaccine sites are ongoing, this means that the actual number of sites may vary but can be viewed from the dashboard.

As we implement Phase 2, we plan to bring online 204 public sector sites across the province, including:  

  • 70 sites in the City of Cape Town
  • 48 sites in the Overberg District;
  • 41 sites in the Garden Route District;
  • 53 sites in the West Coast District;
  • 48 sites in the Cape Winelands District; and
  • 14 sites in the Central Karoo District.

I want to recognise the tremendous efforts of the Provincial Department of Health who are leading this response. I also want to thank each and every healthcare worker for your tireless efforts, hard work and dedication. Together, we will ensure a successful vaccine rollout. 

Let us continue to play our part by ensuring that we are registered if we are eligible to do so. If not, let us help those who are eligible to register for their vaccine.

You can do so by dialling *134*832# from your phone to start the registration process or send the word “REGISTER” to 0600 123 456 on WhatsApp. You can also visit http://vaccine.enroll.health.gov.za, which is accessible from www.westerncape.gov.za.
