President, Cyril Ramaphosa, says following several consultations the whole country will move down to level three lockdown as from the first of next month.
He addressed the nation last night following recent meetings of Cabinet, the National Coronavirus Command Council and the President’s Coordinating Council.
Ramaphosa says under level three, alcohol will be sold for home consumption on specified days and hours, tobacco and all gatherings except for funerals remain prohibited.
Citizens can now exercise at any time of the day, but not in groups.
He says the easing of some restrictions does not mean that the threat posed by the coronavirus has passed or that the country’s fight against the virus is over.
