Premier Winde calls on residents to play their part & help save our summer

During my weekly digital press conference yesterday, it was highlighted that we have left the peak of the third wave, and that we are also on track to leave the third wave.

While this is a positive sign, we need to continue practicing the lifesaving behaviours that we have learnt through the pandemic. Doing so will not only save lives, but it will ensure that we have a summer to look forward to.

As we approach the weekend, I call on residents to be vigilant and continue practicing the lifesaving behaviours that we have learnt to stop the spread of COVID-19. We can do this by:

  • Getting vaccinated.
  • Wearing your mask properly.
  • Washing and sanitising your hands regularly.
  • Avoiding crowded places, confined spaces and close contact.
  • Keeping your gatherings short, small and outdoors – with lots of ventilation.

Premier Winde encourages residents to make use of weekend vaccine sites
