The Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) has further outlined the regulatory changes for South Africa’s lockdown level 3 which will begin on 1 June. 

At a media briefing last Thursday, Cogta minister Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said that most of the country’s economic sectors will be opened, albeit with restrictions. She said that the government’s strategy is based on sound scientific advice as well as international organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO).

However, she noted that due to the country’s unique economic factors the country has had to ease the lockdown. Agbiz head of Legal Intelligence Theo Boshoff summarised the key points of the amended regulations for alert level 3 in the linked article.
