The mayor said that any person found to be in contravention of the regulations will face the full might of the law.

Umdoni Municipality has commenced the enforcement of stringent measures to protect the lives of Umdoni residents following the President’s announcement of the adjusted Alert Level 4 National Lockdown last week.

In light of this, the municipality’s law enforcement team will be more vigilant than ever before and will enforce the law if any persons are found transgressing the health regulations.

Daily patrols are being conducted in public places to ensure that the regulations are strictly observed.

The municipality, in collaboration with the Department of Health, has established various vaccination sites with a view to creating a conducive environment for all.

The municipality places much emphasis on the vaccination of senior citizens.

“One of the supporting statements of Youth Month was that the youth of 2021 was called on to fight the spread of COVID-19.

The Umdoni Municipality reiterates the call to the youth of the area.

We strongly appeal to our young people to assist the elderly to register and be vaccinated immediately,” said Umdoni Mayor, Cllr Sibongile Khathi.

In addition to the three primary Covid-19 prevention measures of wearing a mask, washing and or sanitising hands, and practising social distancing, the mayor warns against public gatherings which are the “super-spreaders” of this virus.

The mayor said that any person found to be in contravention of the regulations will face the full might of the law.

The mayor, therefore, urges the public to work with the municipality to flatten the curve, by adhering strictly to the regulations which will save lives.

The public is further informed that all Umdoni libraries will be closed until July 11, after which the situation will be reviewed.
