Municipal spokesperson, Sipho Mkhize says all employees in the affected section will need to be screened and tested and forced to self-isolate for 14 days.

"Subsequently, we now have to shut down the facility and re-decontaminate as well as retest other employees that have come to contact with the employee who is now affected. 

"Whilst we wish for calm, we ask that residents who have access to go to other registering authorities to do so. We are appealing for calm and are doing everything in our power at the moment."
