The alcohol industry, restaurants breathe a sigh of relief

February 2, 2021


Yesterday, the President announced that the sale of alcohol can resume and the curfew has been relaxed.

Yesterday, the President addressed the nation to announce, among other things, that the current level 3 lockdown restrictions are being relaxed. The new rules mean that the sale of alcohol may recommence after the third outright ban South Africa recently had to endure. The sale of alcohol will take place under strict conditions and may only take place from Monday to Thursday. The curfew has also been relaxed and is now in place from 23:00 to 04:00 daily. The new regulations come at a time when the restaurant and alcohol industry is at its knees. Many eateries and wineries have taken to social media to showcase their gratitude at the chance to revive their businesses.
