This week brings about major changes in our battle with Covid-19 as the Department of Health announces that mask regulations and other restrictions will be dropped. Here's the latest on the changes to Covid restrictions in South Africa.


After a week of speculation the President has now confirmed that the country will be moving to Level 2 of lockdown from midnight on Monday. This means that more businesses can open again and - importantly for some people - alcohol and tobacco can be sold legally again!


When the president announced a 4 week break for public schools, some organisations were not happy that private schools would remain open. Minister Motshekga now says closing private schools along with public schools would not have been in the best interest of learners.


Eyes have been on Independent schools today as COSAS has followed through on its threat. COSAS is hoping independent schools will buckle under pressure, but ISASA has other plans. 


There has been much debate about the government's decision to allow private schools to continue with the school year. COSAS has warned that the virus will not discriminate against learners who attend privileged schools.


The Congress of South African Students (COSAS) insists for schools to be shut down due to regulations not being adhered to.
