Department of Community Safety COVID-19 Response
This is an overview of the Department of Community Safety activities as a part of its targeted Covid-19 hotspot plan interventions in the community of Khayelitsha.
The Western Cape Government cabinet adopted a Whole of Government targeted hotspot plan to tackle the spread of Covid-19 in densely populated areas, where high transmission rates have been recorded.
It aims to change individual and community behavior to slow the spread of the virus and save lives in areas that go beyond districts and even sub-districts. This is done in partnership with all spheres of government.
