WHAG in consultation with Council is taking measures to ensure the safety of all staff and visitors from possible infection of the Corona virus. 

WHAG actions will be based on the specific stage of infection within the city of Kimberley, the broader South Africa and on the announcements of President Ramaphosa on an ongoing basis. This measured will be applied consistently in the workplace, during the lock down period and beyond. 
Guidelines have been developed based on the severity of the infection rate that would dictate the required actions of WHAG staff to prevent infection and to ensure safety and that staff adheres to measures to limit risk to staff, suppliers and the public in contracting the virus. 
The below measures have been identified and efforts are currently being made to ensure that all actions are implemented. 
  • PHASE 1: Phase one measure is defined by the absence of the virus in the country. 
  • PHASE 2: Phase two is defined by the presence of COVID19 in South Africa, but no confirmed cases in a 400 kms radius of the WHAG. 
  • PHASE 3: Phase three is defined by the presence of COVID19 infections in the community where the WHAG is situated. 
  • PHASE 4: Phase four is defined by staff member infection and exposure to the COVID 19 virus.
