CDH's commitment to partnering with you remains steadfast during the nationwide lockdown

On 23 March 2020, President Ramaphosa announced a nationwide lockdown for 21 days, enacted in terms of the Disaster Management Act. From midnight on Thursday, 26 March until midnight on Thursday, 16 April, all South Africans will have to stay at home. We fully support this step for the purpose of the long-term well-being of all who live and work in South Africa and our economy.

As part of the nationwide lockdown, our physical offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Stellenbosch, will close at 13H00 on Thursday 26 March 2020. Despite our office closures, we remain “open for business” but undoubtably operating within a “new normal”. We remain steadfast as we sail these unchartered waters in our commitment to partner with you – our abiding ethos. CDH is doing everything in its power to ensure that our services continue to meet your business needs, including those that are necessitated by the current circumstances while simultaneously playing our part in the national interest of our country. We are fully accessible to you by means of virtual online meetings, emails and telephone calls. Your data, confidentiality and information security remain, as always, secured by our cybersecurity protocols and systems.

CDH is committed to the future of our country and is contributing in every meaningful way possible, to the fight to “flatten the curve”. We walk this path alongside our clients and our fellow South Africans in the pursuit of a brighter, healthy future for us all.

We wish you, your business, employees and families strength and fortitude as we navigate the SARS CoV2 pandemic enveloping our country, and look forward to being able to welcome you back to our offices in what will, hopefully, not be a too distant future.
