Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality urges organisers to postpone events with potentially large crowds
The Nelson Mandela Bay metro says it has advised organisers to postpone or cancel events with potentially large numbers.
The metro says this is one of its measures to protect the City from the looming fourth wave of the coronavirus. This, because there are currently over 550 active COVID-19 cases in the province.
The municipality has also cancelled the launch of its summer season. They say these events can only take place once a majority of residents are vaccinated. The restrictions will affect many artists, financially.
“We understand that COVID-19 is a big challenge for the country, but we can’t run away from the fact that this will affect us negatively. We need these events because we need the money, and now this means that we won’t have anything to eat or bring back to our children at home,” says Artist Wela Matomela.
