A special Cabinet meeting held earlier on Thursday, 30 December 2021, has approved several changes to the Adjusted Alert Level 1 COVID-19 regulations.

According to Government, “all indicators suggest the country may have passed the peak of the (COVID-19) fourth wave at a national level”.

Cabinet has decided to make the following changes to Adjusted Alert Level 1 with immediate effect:
🕛 The curfew will be lifted. There will therefore be no restrictions on the hours of movement of people. No more midnight curfew.
🍺 Alcohol establishments that have licences to operate beyond 23h00 will revert back to full licence conditions. As per City of Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni bylaws, Licensed establishments may close at 02:00 am.
😷 The wearing of masks in public places is still mandatory, and failure to wear a mask when required remains a criminal offence.

Residents are urged to continue vaccinating for things to go back to normal.

Government wishes to commend all South Africans who have observed the health regulations and protocols over the festive season. Government urges everyone to continue to act cautiously and responsibly over the new year and for the remainder of the holiday season.
