The National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac) has recommended restricting public gatherings to vaccinated persons, and for businesses only allowing vaccinated employees to access their place of work.
Nedlac says the most important measures that all social partners agree on is that ramping up vaccinations is critical, as well as the ongoing promotions of pharmaceutical interventions.
Nedlac says workplaces should require employees to be vaccinated.
This recommendation from Nedlac has been referred to government’s National Joint Operational Intelligence Structure.
Labour Minister, Thulas Nxesi, says mandatory policies will depend on risk assessments.
