Department commended for raising awareness of Covid-19
​Chairperson of the Governance and Human Resources Committee
Councillor Nompumelelo Sithole praised the Community
Participation and Action Support Unit for creating awareness
around Covid-19.
THE Community Participation and Action Support Unit can be proud of the contribution that officials have made in the fight against Covid-19 said Chairperson of the Governance and Human Resources Committee Councillor Nompumelelo Sithole.

Councillor Sithole said the mass awareness campaigns that have been rolled out by the unit over the past few weeks, which targeted various areas of the City, have created awareness around curbing the spread of Covid-19. She said: “We are very proud of the work they have done and continue to do. When we talk about a people-centred government, we mean taking government services to where people are and that is exactly what this unit has done.”

The Community Participation and Action Support Unit has been at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19 by visiting informal settlements and working with various councillors to go door to door in
communities to educate people about the safety measures implemented by the Coronavirus National Command Council.

Senior Manager of Regional Services at the Community Participation and Action Support Unit, Mumsy Ntombela said they will continue to engage people regarding the coronavirus pandemic. “Until a vaccine or cure is found, we are all at risk and need to abide by all protocols that have been put in place.” She said wearing a mask and sanitising your hands can help to save lives. “Wearing a mask protects the wearer from getting infected and also protects others from being infected.” Covid-19 is transmitted via droplets which can be released when someone speaks, coughs or sneezes.
