DURABAN- “People will still not be allowed to visit, no organised sporting events will be allowed and no gathering will be allowed, said Co-operative governance and traditional affairs Minsiter Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.
The minister was explaining how level four of the lockdown will work.
Dlamini-Zuma said that even under level 4 of the lockdown it would be mandatory for people leaving their homes to wear a mask.
“When you leave your house you must have a cloth mask. It’s going to be mandatory using a cloth mask as you step out of your home,” she said.You have to have your nose and mouth covered in public. Nobody should have an excuse,” she said.
Specialist masks would be reserved for frontline health workers but those without masks were encouraged to make their own, use a scarf or even a t-shirt.
Dlamini-Zuma said that the only exception to public gatherings were funerals and work.“People can exercise under very strict conditions … but it will exclude any organised activity such as gym.”
