South Africa’s Level 3 Lockdown Regulations relaxed
Ramaphosa announces eased level 3 lockdown for South Africa – including changes for alcohol sales and curfew
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced that South Africa’s adjusted Level 3 Lockdown Regulations will be relaxed following a decline in COVID-19 transmissions. In a national address on Monday, 1 February 2021, the president said that the country has recorded its lowest daily increase in infections since December and that the country has now passed the peaked of the second wave. The average number of daily infections has almost halved, while the number of hospital admissions has also dropped. While the indicators are pointing in the right direction, President Ramaphosa said that that the number of transmissions in the country is still relatively high. However, the president acknowledged that restrictions cannot continue for longer than necessary due to their harmful impact on the economy.
The newly amended regulations will be as follows:
In addition: The 20 land borders that are currently open, will remain closed for general purposes, except for the transport of fuel, cargo, goods or for emergency medical treatment, South Africans returning home, diplomats and daily travellers to South Africa for educational purposes.
