The City of Cape Town has decided to close down beaches as people continue to visit them despite calls for social distancing.
Beaches will close starting tomorrow morning, Tuesday, March 24, to limit public contact as the country battles the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19). Swimming, surfing, kite-surfing, kayaking, recreational fishing, and any other beach or water-based activity will be prohibited. Law enforcement will patrols the beaches while lifeguards will remain stationed on the beaches to assist the officers.
The Shark Spotting Programme will also be stopping all shifts and no Shark Spotters will be on duty at any beaches.
