Overberg COVID-19 update on 4 December 2020

Over the past 7 days, the Overberg has seen a 64% increase in new COVID-19 cases and 6 deaths. We urge the residents to remain cautious and vigilant.

The Overberg has seen an increase in all sub-districts. Towns in the Overberg which are of concern are Swellendam, Cape Agulhas, Villiersdorp, Caledon, Bergsig and Grabouw and continue to drive the district's active cases.

Reports from our local surveillance team indicate that attendance at a funeral, going to shopping centres and non-adherence to quarantine and isolation has led to quite a few cases testing positive. We call on the citizens of each of these subdistricts and as a collective to do their part so we can bring the situation under control again. We all have a role to play through our own actions.

As we enter summer and traditional holiday season, there is a need to socialise and see other people. Ensure you connect safely with other people and stay as safe as possible when leaving your house by avoiding possible super-spreader events.

When going out, always wear your mask and avoid crowded places, close-contact settings, and confined enclosed spaces with poor ventilation.
