The year 2020 has been a year filled with great apprehension, uncertainty and devastation. The advent of the COVID-19 has left many families in grief. Hundreds of thousands of workers have been rendered unemployed and many businesses have had to close doors.
As a City we have witnessed a massive disruption to the social and economic livelihoods of many of our residents with an amplified impact on the most vulnerable within our communities.
As we enter the festive season wherein many will reunite with their families, celebrate and reflect on a year that has been, on behalf of the City of Johannesburg, I wish to urge all residents and visitors to the City to be Safe, to comply with all COVID-19 protocols and to behave responsibly at all times.
The COVID-19 virus infection numbers are on the rise and we urge everybody to take the utmost precautions, at all times, to curb the spread of the virus. Equally, to all those that will be on the roads and driving within the City or in between Johannesburg and other areas, please do so safely, with due consideration to other road users and with full compliance to traffic laws.
We wish all our residents a Merry and Joyous festive break and wish to assure them that as a City, we will continue to provide municipal services through-out this period, to make your stay and break a stress-free one.
