Amended COVID-19 Regulations For Retail


The Department of Trade, Industry, and Competition on Thursday gazetted new amendments to the COVID-19 regulations for the retail sector and the import/export of certain medications.

In the amended regulations, the limitations placed on the sale of clothing, bedding, and footwear published in May were removed.

The amended regulations also state that there is no longer a need for permits to transport medication, particularly if they’re crucial to help combat the fight against COVID-19.

After consultations with the automobile sector, the industry can sell cars again but should follow proper safety protocols, these have also been stated in the amended regulations.

The regulations gazetted have already come into effect.
