The new regulations will kick in on Friday when the country goes to level 4 of the national lockdown. 

The city’s Lebogang Mahaye says anyone not wearing a mask will be refused entry to the city’s buildings. 

The same would be expected of commuters making use of city buses. 

“Anyone entering any of our offices, buildings, using our facilities and assets, basically doing business with the city will be required to wear a cloth mask,” says Mahaye. “It’s important to wear it properly so that it covers your chin, nose and mouth. This also applies to all the city’s employees.”

She urged the residents to continue practising proper hygiene and observe lockdown restrictions.

“The virus does not move, it is the people that move the virus. I implore all the residents of Tshwane and those that work and do business in our city to comply with the Covid-19 regulations to help flatten the curve.”
