South Africa has now dropped down to Covid-19 lockdown level 1.

This move was officially announced by the President today February 28 2021 during his speech to the nation on the latest developments around the coronavirus pandemic.

The new level lockdown which is expected to take effect on Monday has some changes attached to it.

President Cyril Ramaphosa on the new changes stated that the curfew times have been changed from midnight to 4 am and that gatherings — including religious, social, political and cultural — would now be permitted. For indoor events, 100 people would be allowed, and 250 for outdoor events.

Nightclubs, however, would remain closed and the wearing of masks remained mandatory.

He said the new change was a result of the decrease of new infections in the country and that was a clear indication that SA had “clearly emerged from the second wave” of Covid-19.
