News Flash-iSimangaliso Park to Open 8 June
As South Africa enters level 3 of Covid-19 numerous businesses and other state departments are gearing up to reopen. iSimangaliso Wetland Park has officially announced that it too will soon be opening its doors once again. The authority has mentioned that precautionary measures will first have to be completed to ensure the safety of visitors, thus deep cleaning will commence as soon as possible.
Delightful news without a doubt. Now might be a good time to check out what's available should you be visiting soon.
Lowering of alert level 4 to level 3 has paved the way for getting the Park ready to welcome visitors back, and yet in doing so it is critically important to ensure that health and safety protocols are adhered to, and the lives of our staff and visitors are not compromised.
Therefore, as of 1 June 2020, iSimangaliso Wetland Park is going to commence with the process of getting the Park ready for opening on 8 June 2020.
The preparation process will include the following:
• return of iSimangaliso staff and conducting of training on health and safety protocols;
• deep cleaning of offices and public facilities within the Park; and
• preparing the Park for visitors e.g. cutting trees, and removing logs on the road etc.
Once compliance requirements have been met, and the Park has been declared safe, the Park will open in keeping with the Minister’s direction. To this end the iSimangaliso Wetland Park Authority is pleading with the public to exercise patience and understanding, as all these measures are being put in place in the interest of public safety and ensuring that we all play our part in curbing the spread of the virus.
