South African COVID-19 Threat Levels Announced

South Africa is expected to move from a Level 5 to a Level 4 lock-down as of 1 May. Level 4 makes provision for limited economic activity and the easing of some movement. A curfew from 20:00 to 05:00 will kick in, it will be mandatory to wear a cloth face mask, you will be able to buy hot foods for delivery, but you still can’t buy alcohol.

Grade 12 and grade 7 pupils will return to school from May 6. Other grades will return to class on a staggered basis between May and July, as the Covid-19 restrictions are gradually eased.
