SA moves to adjusted lockdown alert level 2 – What you need to know

President Cyril Ramaphosa’s address indicated that Cabinet has decided to move the country to lockdown alert level 2 due to a surge in positive COVID-19 cases.

Here is what you need to know about the easing of the adjusted level 2 regulations:  

  • The hours of curfew will start at 23h00 and end at 04h00
  • It remains mandatory for every person to wear a face mask that covers the nose and mouth at all times when in public spaces. It is a criminal offense not to do so
  • The sale and distribution of alcohol are permitted as normal
  • Funerals remain restricted to no more than 100 people, and, as before, night vigils, after-funeral gatherings, and ‘after-tears’ gatherings are not allowed

ASATA will continue to monitor the situation and share updated information as it becomes available.
