Currently there are 17 patients admitted to Covid-19 wards in public facilities, nine of them considered especially serious.Butler added a total of 42 health workers had tested positive for Covid-19 in the Overberg, of whom 32 have since recovered, with zero deaths recorded. Currently, a total of 105 people are being accommodated in quarantine and isolation facilities in the Overberg. “If you cannot isolate safely at home we urge you to make use of our quarantine and isolation facilities, where you will receive temporary care away from home,” Butler said.

“Transport to and from the facility will be provided as well as food, laundry services and waste disposal.” She added community screening was an ongoing process. “Since the inception of community testing and screenings in the Overberg on 20 April 2020, a total of 221 081 people have been screened by our community health workers, and 825 have been referred for testing.”
