Phase 2 Lockdown Regulations Remain Largely Unchanged


The second phase of the national lockdown will remain largely unchanged, with only a few altered regulations, Minister Dlamini-Zuma said during a National Command Council (NCC) briefing.

She said there would be “a few amendments” but, for the most part, existing regulations will be extended.

Dlamini-Zuma didn’t go into detail when she announced that in the coming weeks some of the regulations will be relaxed.

The NCC announced that emergency repair services such as locksmiths, glaziers, roof repairs, plumbers and electricians are now allowed to operate.

The committee, however, reiterated that cooked food is still off the menu – and supermarkets can’t sell hot roast chicken or pies. They also announced that community watch groups are not allowed to patrol their neighbourhoods and the alcohol ban remains unchanged.

Minister Dlamini-Zuma also announced that South Africans can expect weekly changes.
