Western Cape Government to receive quarantine site donation from Old Mutual
Premier Alan Winde together with Transport and Public Works Minister Bonginkosi Madikizela will tomorrow, Wednesday 27 May 2020, receive a donation of a fully refurbished quarantine site from Old Mutual.
Old Mutual has turned the former Training Centre and Club House, located at the MuPine Golf Club into a 300 bed facility for use by the Western Cape Government. The upgrade and conversion cost R4 million and forms part of Old Mutual’s R52 million contribution to the COVID-19 crisis response initiatives.
As the province moves towards its Covid-19 infection peak it is critically important to have as many active facilities for residents who are unable to quarantine and isolate at home. The Old Mutual facility is a welcome addition to what the Province has already done to ensure that there are facilities to meet the expected demand.
Details are as follows:
Date: Wednesday, 27 May 2020
Venue: Old Mutual Mupine Building, Forest Drive, Pinelands
Given our commitment to ensure social distancing, there are only limited number of spaces available. Media houses wishing to attend must RSVP to Ntomboxolo.Makoba-Somdaka@westerncape.gov.za.
