ON CERTAIN PERMITTED SECTORS
STILL NOT GAZETTED
The Minister of Tourism, on Friday, 26 June 2020, issued a media statement setting out operational guidelines, which purports to be the guidelines that will be applicable to Restaurants, Conference Facilities, Accommodation and Casinos.
However, at the time of writing, the guidelines have not yet been gazetted.
Although it is expected that the gazetted guidelines will conform to those contained in the media statement, this is not guaranteed, as it has happened in the past that final gazetted regulations differed significantly from those reported in the media.
The media statement furthermore refers to a detailed questionnaire, which must be completed, in the case of restaurants, but which will be published together with the regulations.
Despite this, we believe that employers in these sectors could use the media statement to start implementing measures required to reopen and adapt these measures accordingly, should the gazetted guidelines differ.

We will keep members abreast of developments in this regard.
