Cape Town mayor says there is no need to restrict outdoor gatherings

He said Cape Town is “open for business” and ready for the return of full-scale events, festivals and sports matches with packed crowds.

“Cape Town is also among the most vaccinated places in the country. There is no sound scientific reason to continue to restrict outdoor gathering sizes, and these restrictions only hold back the economic recovery that is so urgently necessary,” said Hill-Lewis.

The mayor said it was concerning that many of the state of disaster’s restrictions would persist under the proposed Health Act regulations.

As previously reported, some of the restrictions that will remain in place include mask-wearing indoors in public, social distancing in some indoor gatherings, funerals will be limited to 200 people, and outdoor gatherings are still limited to 2000 people.
