During President Cyril Ramaphosa's State of the Nation Address, he made many announcements pertaining to improving challenges the country faces. One of this involved the National State of Disaster as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.


The Easter weekend is days away and Government has had to make some changes to the lockdown restrictions, which includes an alcohol ban. Fears of a third wave are now emerging.


Minister Dlamini -Zuma has released a government gazette which dives deep into the new lockdown regulations announced by President Ramaphosa. We've made it simpler for you, here are the new regulations.


International Relations and Cooperation Minister Naledi Pandor urges South Africans to be alert and take caution when travelling internationally over this festive season as countries overseas are entering the second wave of the pandemic and lockdowns may ensue. 


You can have social events at your house again - but no more than 10 people can attend! That's just one of the new rules that apply under lockdown level 2. Minister Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma has outlined the details of the regulations for level 2 of lockdown - including the sale of alcohol and tobacco again.


If you were planning on taking an overseas trip anytime this year, you might want to reconsider. Best and worst case scenarios have been put out in terms of when international travel will be allowed. There is a chance that it will be allowed this month but predictions are also being made that international trips will only be allowed in 2021.


Ramaphosa has ruled that you will be able to buy alcohol during level 3 but the tobacco ban stays in place. These changes to the lockdown regulations will come into play on 1 June, with further regulations in place.
