Upcoming Events

The President of South Africa has now eased our National State of Disaster, but has retained some of the health mandates to continue to control the Covid pandemic.

The JCNR will organise future events in line with the National guidelines.

During these times, we urge you all to maintain good health, to change your behaviour and to regularly wash your hands.  Should you feel unwell, with a high fever and dry cough, we recommend that you consult your doctor. By attending our events, you warrant that you, and any accompanying companions, have not been in contact with anyone who is Covid-19 positive, nor are exhibiting any Covid-19 symptoms.
