The Sunday Times has reported on a level 3 regulations draft that has been widely circulated with information purporting changes when the country transitions from level 4 of the lockdown to level 3 with the major topic in the discussion being the issue to do with the sale of alcohol and cigarettes.
While these still rumours as the authenticity of the report haven’t been verified, the government insiders which have spoken to various Sunday Newspapers have confirmed the contents of the document.
The Sunday Times reported that the Minister for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has tabled the draft level 3 regulations.
The City Press said the national command council has agreed on the new regulations for the level 3 lockdown stage change this coming week.
Here are the Level 3 drafty Regulations
The draft regulation document for level 3 of the lockdown proposes that all most sectors of the economy be opened with the exception of a few businesses like restaurants and bars, hotels, and recreational facilities and gyms.
The document states that the following remain unchanged.
- Consumption of food and beverages at or in the place of sale, including restaurants and bars.
- Accommodation, air travel and passenger ships for recreational purposes.
- Conferences and events, including sports events.
- Personal care services, including hairdressing, beauty treatments, makeup and nail salons, and piercing and tattoo parlours, where the adequate social distance of at least 1.5m between customers is not possible.
- Domestic work, unless the worker is live-in, provides essential support, or is provided with private transport.
Please note that these proposals that are circulating have not been confirmed by the government and may change when the announcement is made officially.
