“Despite these many achievements in the implementation of the National Preparedness and Response Plan, the outbreak is not over, and our country still has some gaps.“These gaps are being addressed in a targeted way, using a comprehensive Covid-19 preparedness and response strategy which takes into account risks and needs of different communities and populations.“Zimbabwe will, therefore, continue on level two lockdown for an indefinite period. We shall have regular two-week interval reviews to assess progress or lack of it,” Mnangagwa said.
Mnangagwa also indicated that bars and gymnasiums would remain closed, while inter-city and cross-boarder movement of people by road or air transport would remain banned — except for the transportation of cargo.
In this regard too, only Zupco buses and Zupco-contracted commuter omnibuses would be allowed to operate.
“All businesses and industries seeking to re-open must follow laid down measures previously announced in relation to social distancing, hand sanitisation, temperature checks and health education, among others.“In addition, employees must undergo regular health checks and daily temperature monitoring. Shops and supermarkets should continue to enforce the social distancing of their customers,” Mnangagwa said — adding that operating hours for business had been adjusted to be from 8am to 4:30pm.
