Two years after the announcement of a national State of Disaster was declared to deal with the Covid-19 outbreak, the President has said that it will finally be lifted. However this won't happen straight away. However some changes to the current rules on issues like wearing masks are to be made immediately.


The Cabinet has announced that because the latest wave of Covid-19 is believed to have peaked a number of restrictions have been removed from the Level ! 1 lockdown rules.


There was some relaxation to the lockdown rules when President Cyril Ramaphosa made his more recent speech to the county on Sunday night.  The third wave is not over he said, but it is significantly easing so the government has decided that the rules can be relaxed to allow some more freedom of movement and business to return.


With the number of new cases of Covid-19 dropping in most provinces in the country, the President has announced a move down to adjusted alert level 3 and some relaxations in lockdown restrictions.


The validity of visas that expired during the lockdown has been extended. Home Affairs Minister, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi released a gazette explaining the extension. 


At the December edition of the country's 'family meeting' President Cyril Ramaphosa has reminded the country that we cannot let our guard down in the fight against Covid-19.  He announced new restrictions for those living where the outbreak is the worst, but for all South Africans, it is too soon to relax in the fight against this virus. The full video is available on our website.
