GoodLuck issues apology following viral video of packed La Parada event

Johannesburg – Despite repeated warnings from the government to social distance and to pay attention to safety precautions amid the spike in Covid-19 cases, the fans of popular Cape Town-based live-electronic band GoodLuck parties as though lockdown was a thing of the past.

In a video that has since gone viral on social media, people can be seen singing along, dancing, cheering and raising their glasses and chairs with no masks and social distancing in place.

This follows a performance by the band at an event that was hosted and run by La Parada Spanish-inspired tapas restaurant and bar in Constantia Nek, Cape Town.

The band took to Facebook on Monday to state an apology.

According to lockdown level 1 regulations, social gatherings are permitted, as long as the number of people does not exceed 50% of the normal capacity of a venue, up to a maximum of 250 people for indoor gatherings and 500 people for outdoor gatherings.

The regulations further state that all health protocols must be observed including social distancing measures.

This comes after several videos gone viral with patrons at entertainment venues not following Covid-19 regulations.

La Parada has yet to issue a statement.
