President Cyril Ramaphosa, on Thursday evening, detailed the adjusted level 1 lockdown.
The following activities are prohibited:
Level 1 lockdown brings with it far more relaxed measures aimed at stemming the spread of COVID-19. The following restrictions, among others, have been amended:
Ramaphosa said if vaccination targets are reached by the end of this year, South Africa can avoid further restrictions.
“Our greatest priority now is to ensure that the economy recovers as quickly as possible so that we can create jobs and help businesses to get back on their feet.
The only way that we can do this is if more South Africans choose to get vaccinated, more quickly.
“If the majority of our population is vaccinated, we can declare South Africa to be a safe destination and welcome tourists back over the summer season.
We can resume sporting events and concerts, lift restrictions on restaurants and bars, and encourage people to return safely to their workplaces, shops and public spaces.”
