Night clubs and bars allowed to operate

ZIMBABWE’S Cabinet has agreed to allow bars and night clubs to open but only to vaccinated persons.
This comes a relief to bar owners who were closed since the start of the lockdown with Government citing them as superspreaders.
Addressing a post Cabinet media briefing on Tuesday, Information, Broadcasting and Media Services professed bars and night club owners had been enduring losses during the lockdown.
“Cabinet notes, with concern, that the continued closure of licensed bars and night clubs has caused not only a loss of income and unemployment but also resulted in the mushrooming of illegal outlets.
Cabinet therefore directed that all licensed bars be opened to fully vaccinated clients. Bar owners are also required to ensure that the World Health Organisation and national protocols and guidelines are enforced, failure of which their licences will be withdrawn. The bars are also required to adhere to curfew hours,” the Information Minister said.
She also said the Level 2 lockdown has been extended.
“His Excellency the President Cde E.D. Mnangangwa has extended Level 2 Lockdown by a further 2 weeks. The public is advised to continue observing WHO and National COVID-19 Protocols of sanitizing, masking up, practicing social distancing and observing curfew hours,” said Minister Mutsvangwa.
