The nationwide lockdown in South Africa is approaching alert Level 3, set to commence Monday, 1 June.
While the economy is slowly starting to reopen, tourism and travel-related businesses are still not allowed to operate due to safety risks, pushing the industry further towards a downward spiral.
Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, released the regulations set out in the Disaster Management Act applicable to Level 3.
1. Under level 3, limitations on movement across provinces, and now between metropolitan areas and districts and hotspots, is prohibited.
2. Restaurants and bars remain closed, however, take-away food purchases are allowed as well as alcohol for home consumption.
3. All hotels, lodges and resorts remain closed too, except for the accommodation of persons performing work permitted under Level 3, or to be used as quarantine sites.
4. Beaches and public parks remain closed. The regulations also state that while all tourist attractions remain closed, private, self-drive excursions are permitted. (We're not sure how to determine this one, maybe you can give us your thoughts in the comments below please)
5. She said all employers must have a COVID-19 plan and COVID-19 compliance officer.
