The Tourism Business Council of South Africa has raised concerns over the possibility of the full closure of beaches during the festive season. This comes amid speculation that the National Coronavirus Command Council might consider closing beaches during the Christmas period to help slow the rapid spread of COVID-19. President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation on Monday night on developments in the country’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The SABC reports that TBCSA CEO Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa says there needs to be careful consideration of further restrictions to ensure social distancing is carried out.
