Western Cape MEC for Community Safety Albert Fritz has tested positive for Covid-19, he said on Friday
“I have tested positively for Covid-19 and have immediately begun self-isolating. Members of my staff have also begun self-quarantining. I have previously self-quarantined as a precaution as I know that this is the surest way to stop the spread,” he said in a series of three tweets.
Fritz said he would continue to work, despite testing positive.
“Where it is possible, I am ensuring that all of my meetings are held virtually. Where it is not possible, I will continue to focus on my recovery safely at home.”
He cautioned residents that there was a resurgence of Covid-19.
“I wish to remind residents that, as a province, we are experiencing a resurgence in Covid-19 cases and that more than ever we must continue to wash our hands, wear our masks correctly and maintain a safe social distance.”
