There have been 544 new cases from  June 5 to  June 11 and 24 deaths with an average of 78 new cases per day.
NAC acting director J Kusema said, “The suspension which runs from Monday 14 june until further notice signals the deferement of events that appeal to the general public to attent for consumption of cultural goods and services offered by the sectors.”
“All events which attract public gathering are therefore suspended.”
NAC encouraged players in the sector to utilise digital alternatives to reach the general public
“Day to day office work by artists for continued production and recreation of new arts shall align to 8am to 6 pm work routines as enunciated in the new covid containment regulation.
“NAC encouraged all the arts sector players to comply and give maximum support to the government and national efforts to contain the Covid-19 third wave currently on the rise of our nation.”
