Workplace gatherings for work purposes will be permitted under strict conditions during level 3 lockdown, said Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

Conditions for workplace gatherings

          • observance of health, hygiene
          • observance of social distancing protocols.
          • Employers must ensure that the 1.5 metres distance is maintained amongst employees.

”We will have to limit the number of people in the workplaces, so that we minimise the chance of infection,” said Dlamini-Zuma.

Limited Domestic Travel

In order to ensure smooth movement of employees and as a measure to carefully and gradually open our economy we will also permit a limited domestic air travel service, said Dlamini-Zuma.

”Suffice to say current regulations, directions, guidelines and health protocols will be strengthened so as to factor in the increased and gradual return to work of many more people.”

Amongst those returning to work are all public servants, with the exception of those who have permission to conduct work from home from time to time and those that are older than 60 or carry with them comorbidity conditions.

”Our message remains the same — work from home if you can, wash your hands, and maintain a safe 1.5 metre social distance from the next person. The Minister of Public Services and Administration has issued a circular in this regard.”
