With the cold weather expected to continue until at least this weekend, residents are urged to be extra vigilant, to avoid a further increase in covid-19 infections.

Winde says the province has seen an increase in Covid-infections – over the past three weeks – with more that 12-thousand residents that now have active forms of the virus.
