What Mzanzi Noticed When The president was addressing last night
After a long time without talking to the nation the president addressed the nation last night, this was after there were hopes and signals of good stats about Covid-19 third wave
Cyril Ramaphosa is the president of South Africa. Because of these discussions, the Cabinet has decided that the country should be downgraded from Adjusted Alert Level 3 to Adjusted Alert Level 2 with effect from today, September 13th, 2021 (Today, September 13th, 2021).
The curfew will now begin at 11 p.m. and end at 4 a.m., instead of 11 p.m. and 4 a.m.
Those establishments such as restaurants, taverns, and fitness facilities that aren’t absolutely necessary will have to close by 10 p.m. In order for their staff and clients to make it home before the curfew begins, they are doing this.
Indoor meetings will be limited to 250 people, and outdoor events will be limited to 500 people. The number of people who can attend will be announced later.
No more than half of the venue’s capacity may be used if the space is insufficient to accommodate these numbers of people while still preserving appropriate social distance between them.
Religion, politics, social gatherings, and other activities that take place in public places like restaurants, bars, taverns, and other similar institutions fall under this category.
Drinking alcohol in public places is still against the law.
Retail establishments are permitted to sell alcoholic beverages for off-site consumption from Monday to Friday between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Sales of alcoholic beverages for consumption on-site will be permitted up to 10 p.m., subject to the requirements of the license.
Several important precautions are still in place.
Everyone is expected to wear a face mask that completely covers their nose and mouth at all times when in public locations, including schools.
It is against the law to fail to do so, and store and restaurant owners, as well as taxi and bus drivers, have a responsibility to ensure that their customers wear masks and that suitable social distancing measures are in place before opening their establishment.
Many people remarked that the president appeared more comfortable throughout his speech and that he was no longer dressed in a suit, but instead appeared to be wearing the same shirt that the previous president Nelson Mandela is best known for.
