In a move to curb the spread of COVID-19, South Africa has moved to adjusted level 3 from level 1 with immediate effect, President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Monday.
The President further announced that non-essential establishments – including shops, restaurants, bars and all cultural venues – must close at 8pm.
Due to new regulations please see our adjusted Trading Times below:
Compulsory wearing of facemasks
“From now on it is compulsory for every person to wear a mask in a public space. A person who does not wear a cloth mask covering over the nose and mouth in a public place will be committing an offence.
“A person who does not wear a mask could be arrested and prosecuted. On conviction, they will be liable to a fine or to imprisonment for a period not exceeding six months or to both a fine and imprisonment. This is a drastic measure but is now necessary to ensure compliance with the most basic of preventative measures,” President Ramaphosa said
The level 3 restrictions will remain in place until 15 January 2021.
“These measures will be reviewed at that time on the basis of the state of the pandemic in the country,” the President said.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation in the matter.
