Lockdown easing 1st May – here’s what’s coming

Lockdown is here to stay at least until July in some form and it’s going to remain harsh. Why else would 73 000 troops be authorised onto the streets of South Africa until the 26th June source

We’re going to see progressive lifting of restrictions over time but only in the economic sector, with the social lockdown remaining in force. Industries will need to comply with Government’s Covid-19 prevention and management requirements before re-opening. Expect shops selling food to be allowed to sell their full range of products including cigarettes from next week.
