… navigating through the COVID-19 lockdown predicament …



Dear employer

The President, last night, reduced the Covid-19 Alert Level to an adjusted Alert Level 2.

The President indicated that the following amended regulations remain applicable:

 •  gatherings are permitted, subject to a maximum of 250 people indoors and 500 people                outdoors or 50% of capacity for smaller venues;
 •  all interprovincial borders remain open;
 •  funerals may only be attended by a maximum of 50 people and night vigils are not permitted;
 •  public recreational spaces such as parks, dams and beaches will remain open, subject to the      rules of mask-wearing and social distancing;
 •  business premises must determine the maximum number of employees permitted on the              premises to accommodate a 1.5-meter distance between employees;
 •  the curfew has been reduced to between 23:00 and 04:00;
 •  sale of alcohol on-site is permitted until 22:00 subject to licensing requirements;
 •  off-site sale of alcohol is permitted from 10:00 to 18:00, from Monday to Friday;
 •  non-essential businesses, including restaurants and gyms, must close by 22:00;
 •  restaurant sit-down services, bars and taverns are permitted to a maximum of 250 people            indoors and 500 people outdoors or 50% of capacity for smaller venues; and
 •  every person is compelled to wear a mask in a public space. It is a criminal offence,                      punishable by a fine or imprisonment, not to do so.

We will keep members abreast of developments in this regard.
