The South African National Parks (SANParks) authority said on Friday that it is preparing to recall its hospitality staff for a phased re-opening of its overnight facilities.
This follows an announcement on June 17 by President Cyril Ramaphosa that accommodation providers can resume operations under lockdown level 3.
Nations parks were closed when the country went into lockdown to flatten the curve of COVID-19.
SANParks CEO Fundisile Mketeni said staff will get training to cut the chances of COVID-19 spread in national park facilities.
“We will… activate the re-training of staff on new operating protocols in line with industry standards,” he said.
The dates for the reopening of accommodation bookings will be announced “in the next few days,” Mketeni said. Enditem
