face masks
BREAKING NEWS: Health Minister Joe Phaahla has ended the mandatory use of #masks indoors and removed restrictions on #gatherings. This comes as the country experiences low #COVID19 infections and related deaths.

Specific restrictions which will be discussed as part of the consultations include:
  • Mask-wearing no longer needs to be in place;
  • Restrictions on gatherings are no longer necessary;
  • Entry limitations (Covid certificate) must no longer be in place at specific venues.
Mask rules are being eased globally, in many parts of Europe and the US. And Bloomberg reported that the European Union is relaxing its guidance for mask-wearing on flights as many airlines have already abandoned those rules with Covid-19 concerns easing.

While South Africa has ended its national state of disaster, several regulations remain on gatherings and mask-wearing.
