The Confederation of Zimbabwe Retailers (CZR) applauds President Cde Dr Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa for relaxing Covid-19 restrictions by announcing a level 2 lockdown in order to curb the global pandemic.
The new relaxed restrictions will run for two weeks and will be reviewed thereafter.
These relaxed measures are;
*Intercity transport is permitted.
*Curfew is now from 2200hrs to 0500hrs
*Public Gatherings 100 people maximum
*Business time is now 0800 to 1900 hours
*Bottle stores to sell takeaways until 1600hrs
Despite the latest relaxation, CZR urges business and the general public to strictly adhere to the measures.
Let us all remain vigilant and save lives and livelihoods. President Mnangagwa is on record saying it is better to save lives as the economy will be resuscitated in future. CZR therefore urges people to continue getting vaccinated
The country is in a state of war against the invisible enemy, the Covid-19 pandemic, and it is our collective responsibility to stop the spread of this respiratory disease. Together we can defeat Covid-19.
