  • Hairdressers, restaurants to reopen

    President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced that sit-in restaurants and the grooming and personal care sector will resume for business soon, as South Africa moves to reopen more economic sectors.

    Ramaphosa said cabinet has decided to ease restrictions on restaurants for sit-down meals, accommodation facilities, conference facilities, cinemas and theatres, casinos, personal care services (including hairdressers and beauty services), non-contact sports, contact sports (but only for training).

    Ramaphosa said these activities will be permitted but with stringent rules, which will be announced in due course. The dates for reopening will be communicated soon.

    He said, as the country gradually opens up, the risk of infection "inevitably increases". He added, however, the risk of infection is not inevitable, saying that one's behaviour can determine whether they contract the virus. He reminded the public to wear a mask.
