Protect and save lives: use our quarantine and isolation facilities

5 July 2020

The Western Cape Government has brought online 1088 isolation and quarantine facility beds in the Cape Winelands District by 30 June 2020.

Everyone needs to take definite action to protect the vulnerable and those at high risk of severe COVID-19.

By quarantining or isolating at one of the facilities offered by the Western Cape Government Health and partners means you can comfortably recover without posing a risk to your loved ones' health.

Going to a quarantine or isolation facility protects the people in your home who are older than 55 years of age and those who have comorbid conditions.

If your living circumstances make it difficult for you to stay separated for up to 14 days, use a dedicated quarantine/isolation facility to protect your loved ones.

An overnight facility for quarantine or isolation will provide you:

  • Regular meals
  • Health monitoring by a healthcare worker
  • Laundry services
  • Comfort and quiet while you recover
  • Free transport to and from the facility

Leaving home is tough: but if you do so, you can make sure that you don’t spread the virus to anyone else in your home or community.

We need to think of the ones we love right now and make small sacrifices to keep them safe.

Let’s do it for our grannies, aunties and best friends.

Those who have used our quarantine and isolation facilities have been well cared for, discharged after recovery and reunited with their families.
