Under level 1 regulations, gatherings are restricted to no more than 1,000 people indoors and no more than 2,000 people outdoors.
“If a venue is too small to hold the prescribed number of people, observing a distance of at least 1.5m from each other, then not more than 50% of the capacity of the venue may be used, subject to strict adherence to all health protocols and social distancing measures,” the amendment to the regulations read.
DA leader John Steenhuisen on Tuesday repeated a call for an end to the national state of disaster.
“The state of disaster is no longer necessary for managing the virus. On the contrary, it is doing SA more harm than good by undermining our social, economic and democratic recovery,” he said.
“SA needs certainty. Investors need it, tourists need it, teachers need it, schoolchildren need it. Schoolchildren need to go to school full-time, not a couple of days a week.”
