Later curfew and leisure accommodation now allowed at level 3
Thu, 30 July 2020 - Staff Writer
Tourism Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane announced today that accommodation establishments are now allowed to accept leisure travellers, as long as they are traveling within the province.
The new regulations would however not allow more than two people to share a room, except for a nuclear family that included parents and their children.
She also announced a change to the curfew from 9pm to 10pm, which would assist restaurants to trade later than before. Alcohol sales would however continue to be prohibited.
The restaurant Association of South Africa has warned that the alcohol sales ban was having a devastating effect on restaurants since patrons were far less included to eat out if they were unable to order drinks.
Responding to a question about whether restaurant staff were able to after the curfew, tourism director-general Victor Tharage confirmed that staff with permits are allowed to travel.
Kubayi-Ngubane also announced that tour operators will be allowed to conduct guided tours in open safari vehicles, subject to directions.
In a follow-up on Friday, Minister of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries Barbara Creecy clarified that overnight accommodation for hunters would also be permitted at level 3.
