WESTERN CAPE NEWS - Premier Alan Winde asked residents to stay safe over the public holiday.
According to a media statement by the premier:
Tomorrow, we will commemorate youth day and I call on residents to stay safe over the public holiday.
I remind residents to avoid gatherings at this time as we are experiencing a third wave of COVID-19 infections.
If you must meet with family and friends, please be responsible, by keeping your gathering small, short and outside, where there is lots of good ventilation.
I also urge residents to be responsible over this period and make wise decisions. This also means that should you wish to drink alcohol; you must do so responsibly. Please do not drink and drive, and ensure that you rest properly if you are travelling.
Premier Winde calls on young people to spare 6 minutes for 60+
