Thatching grass harvest season to comply with covid-19 regulations

Thatching grass harvest season to comply with covid-19 regulations

On Wednesday, the Department of Forestry and Range Resources authorised the commencement of the thatching grass harvest season by calling on harvesters to comply with the regulations and health protocols to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.  

During the harvest season that will end on October 20, 2020, harvesters have been asked to desist from overcrowding at camping sites.

Apart from taking precautionary measures against the spread of covid-19, harvesters are also expected to harvest within the designated covid-19 zones, consult other land users of the affected localities, practice good hygiene, manage waste, and ensure open fires, if used, are attended to at all times, and put off immediately after use to avoid bush fires.
