GEORGE NEWS - All the Group Editors newspapers will continue operating to keep our readers informed, in print and online.
The South African National Editors' Forum (Sanef) says on its website that the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) and the South African Police Services (SAPS) have stated that journalists who are stopped by security personnel that are enforcing the lockdown, will need to show media cards.
The George Herald, Mossel Bay Advertiser, Knysna-Plett Herald, Oudtshoorn Courant, South Cape Forum and Graaff-Reinet Advertiser will be published and will be available for the next three weeks during lockdown.
In a joint statement, Group Editors Operations Director Nicole Rimbault and Sales and Marketing Director Servaas de Kock stated the company's support for President Cyril Ramaphosa's actions.
"But we do recognise that we have a duty and responsibility to the community to keep our readers informed with accurate news regarding developments. We will continue to produce high quality news that adheres to the fact-checking protocol of Covid-19. Let's stay safe in these challenging times. God bless!"
