    New Covid-19 variant or not, Rage 2021 will go ahead, say organisers
    https://www.iol.co.za/news/south-af...ganisers-341464ab-0f0d-4b3a-ab27-b25566aa4547
    26 Nov. 202`

    The Ballito Rage will still go on despite the discovery of a new Covid-19 variant which is believed to be the driving force behind a spike in cases in Gauteng. Ballito Rage is expected to take place between November 30 to December 5.

    Organisers said [that] ... Any changes that may be communicated or required will be effected as needed.

    They said there will be a strictly no vaccine, no entry rule enforced.

    Furthermore, all attendees and staff must be fully vaccinated and show digital proof of vaccination, which will be verified before entry is allowed.

    "Two rapid antigen tests during the festival for guests and staff, on the first day of arrival and the third day of attendance. We have further mandated that a negative Covid-19 test must be presented by every guest on arrival at the festival.

    “We also will make sure that attendees comply with all Covid-19 regulations on site per national guidelines and all testing data will be sent to the Department of Health daily, who have a task team in support," organisers said."

    27 Nov. 2021

    Sixty-one people who arrived in Amsterdam on two flights from South Africa have tested positive for Covid-19, Dutch officials say.

    They have been placed in isolation at a hotel near Schiphol airport.

    They were among some 600 passengers held for several hours after arrival while they were tested for the virus.

    The Dutch authorities are carrying out further testing to see if there are any cases of Omicron, named on Friday as a variant of concern by the WHO..."

    "Johnson said those who had come into contact with people testing positive for a suspected case of Omicron would have to self-isolate for 10 days and that face masks must be worn in shops and on public transport but not restaurants and pubs in England."

    o_O WTF is this?

    It's the same here. After all, it's difficult to eat or drink while wearing a mask!
