#OwnYourLife: Hospitality industry pleads with SA to vaccinate | News Article
Gareth Daubney, owner and CEO of Johnny LUCKY restaurant in Bloemfontein, previously told OFM how lifting the liquor ban and the curfew might help the industry recover slowly but surely.

The hospitality industry is pleading with South Africans to get vaccinated to avoid a hard lockdown during the festive season.

This comes after the extension of the State of Disaster to 15 December 2021.

Fedhasa says government should consider all options before implementing further restrictions.

It says a hard lockdown will damage the already ailing tourism industry.

"I think vaccination is the only route out," said Fedhasa national chairperson, Rosemary Anderson.

"Some countries are going through a fourth wave but vaccinations seem to be the way out. It's not sustainable to keep closing down the tourism industry in South Africa without giving financial support.

"If they do this now the damage may be worse than the Covid pandemic."
