Dear WRSA member,
Attached hereto, are some informative and helpful information:
- Workplace guidelines, as compiled by Agri Western Cape (Thank you to them!)
- Minister Didiza’s statement: 24 March 2020
- Essential and critical business continuity services during lockdown.
(Services listed to be maintained during the course of lock-down, include agricultural and food supply related operations, including farming, veterinary and phyto-sanitary provider services, pest control services and chemical and fertilizer providers. Anti-poaching and wildlife conservation are listed as enabling services.
The second last paragraph of the document indicates that a detailed list will be made available in due course.)
WRSA updates our website regularly with important information received from the relevant government departments, the official task teams on COVID-19, Agri-SA and other reliable sources. www.wrsa.co.za/covid-19/
We await clarity on guidelines for day labourers on agricultural land. There are different opinions at the moment, but we will await the outcome of discussions by the task teams on Covid-19 which takes place today.
WRSA will keep you informed. WRSA regularly send information to our members via our whats-app group. If you do not receive the whats-app messages, please forward us your telephone number to be added.
