Changes To SafeKey To Be Announced On Friday

February 3, 2022

[Updated] “Some immediate changes to SafeKey will be announced tomorrow,” Minister of Youth, Culture, and Sport Dr Ernest Peets said today [Feb 3].

The Government has repeatedly mentioned trying to learn to live with Covid, with most people projecting that Covid will be around for some time to come, and the schedule for tomorrow’s sitting of Parliament lists a statement due to be delivered by the Health Minister entitled “Living with Covid – The Public Health Emergency.”

Extract from the BNV interview

When asked about the SafeKey policy during an interview today, the Minister told Bernews, “Covid, of course, is going to be around for a long time to come. Moving beyond the pandemic and learning to live with Covid is going to be something that our jurisdiction and every jurisdiction is going to have to grapple with, not just today, but in the weeks and months and years to come.

“SafeKey, of course, is a tool, and it’s best used when everyone understands how it works, and it certainly has its benefits, but as it relates to its current implementation, some immediate changes to SafeKey will be announced tomorrow.”
