CMASA’s 1st response to ‘National State of Disaster’ declared by President Ramaphosa on 15 March 2020

The drastic and unprecedented measures announced by the President on 15 March 2020 are directed to slow down the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus in all communities. It is meant to “flatten the curve” so to speak. At this point in time, social behavioural change is undoubtedly the only “lever we can pull”, to use the words of Adrian Gore.

Clubs must play a proactive and supporting role in this objective and Club Managers will be called upon to provide leadership in this fight.
