Communities, industries, businesses, and entities, both private and in the public sector, must operate within the Adjusted Alert Level 2 regulations as amended and gazetted. Every person is obliged to observe curfew time from 23H00 until 04H00 daily, unless a person has a permit. Attendance of funerals is limited to 100 persons. All people attending gatherings including faith-based ones are restricted to a total number of 100 people indoors and 250 outdoors. Where the venue is too small to accommodate these numbers with appropriate social distancing, then no more than 50 percent of the capacity of the venue may be used.
Minister Dlamini Zuma calls on citizens to remain cautious, vigilant, and safe, as some provinces are officially experiencing the third wave.
