Read SA's new lockdown rules – breaking them could mean a fine or jail time

The wearing of face masks in public is mandatory except for “a person who undertakes vigorous exercise in a public place, provided the person maintains a distance of at least 1.5m from any other person”.

Indoor gatherings for concerts, live performances, political events, conferences, cinemas, theatres, casinos and at sports grounds are limited to 100 people or fewer in the case of an indoor gathering and 250 people outdoors.

If the venue is too small to hold 100 people observing a distance of at least 1.5m from each other, then not more than 50% of the capacity of the venue may be used.

Hotels, lodges, bed and breakfasts, timeshare facilities, resorts and guesthouses are also subjected to a restriction on the number of people allowed – not more than 50% of the available accommodation capacity.

District municipalities will have to alert residents if increasing infections could lead to the area being declared a hotspot. Areas with high infection rates within districts must be made known to the public.

While in-store alcohol sales have been restricted from Monday to Thursday, only “registered wineries and wine farms” may continue to offer wine tastings and sell liquor for off-site consumption from 10am to 6pm from Mondays to Saturdays.
