To our valued Clients, Suppliers, Colleagues and Friends

Our thoughts are with you, your families and your businesses at this time.

As you are by now aware, South Africa is approaching a 21-day Lockdown starting at midnight on 26 March 2020. The President has urged businesses that can remain open by working remotely to do so. In accordance with this, Scout PR & Social Media will continue to operate and our team has already been briefed on this way forward.

We will maintain our regular working hours, with availability for any crisis communications both during and after hours if necessary. As an agency, we have been working remotely since approximately 12 March 2020 and have managed to navigate the challenges of zero face-time via a shared drive with a digitized internal status updates and Hangouts. We will continue in this mode. 

Since the President announced a 21-day national lockdown as a critical step to contain the coronavirus pandemic, as well as protecting the lives of South Africans, below is an info graphic released by the South African government, that contain a set of rules for you to follow throughout the duration of the lockdown period:

We are here to support you. Please let us know how we can assist? We are happy to help in any way we can.

Please stay well and healthy!
