Police Minister Bheki Cele along with Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, will on Tuesday morning brief the country on the adjusted Level 3 regulations that pertain to their respective portfolios.
On Monday night, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that the country will move to Alert Level 3 with some changes to the regulations.
This amid a second wave of COVID-19 infections, exacerbated by a new more infectious variant of the virus.
In the video below, President Ramaphosa addresses the nation:
The Level 3 restrictions will remain in force until January 15, 2021 – when they will be reviewed.
They include a prohibition of indoor and outdoor meetings and the curfew being extended from 9pm to 6am.
