Hope you’re doing reasonably well. I’m fine, thank you. Always an impressive array of automotive prowess on the gym’s parking lot:
Porsche and Jeep. At least 1,000 times more expensive than Oubaas but not nearly as cool. =^.^=
Okay, remember I was a bit miffed about still having to wear my facemask when shopping? Well, guess I’ve figgered it out by now. Restrictions are nearly all gone by now …
These transitional measures, which will automatically lapse after 30 days, are the following:
Firstly, we will still be required to wear a face mask in an indoor public space. This is necessary to prevent transmission in high-risk places, especially while many people remain unvaccinated.
A mask is not required when outdoors.
Secondly, the existing restrictions on gatherings will continue as a transitional measure.
This means that both indoor and outdoor venues can take up to 50 percent of their capacity without any maximum limit, provided that proof of vaccination or a COVID test not older than 72 hours is required for entrance to the venue.
Where there is no provision for proof of vaccination or a COVID test, then the current upper limit of 1,000 people indoors and 2,000 people outdoors will remain.
Thirdly, the existing provisions with respect to international travel remain in place.
This means that travellers entering South Africa will need to show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test not older than 72 hours.
If a traveller does not submit a vaccine certificate or proof of a negative COVID-19 test, they will be required to do an antigen test on arrival.
If they test positive for COVID-19, they will need to isolate for 10 days.
Fourthly, the directions that provide for the payment of the special R350 Social Relief of Distress Grant will remain in place.
This will enable the Department of Social Development to finalise the regulations that will allow the payment of the grant to continue.
Fifthly, directions that provide for the extension of the validity of a learner’s licence, driving licence card, licence disc, professional driving permit and registration of a motor vehicle will remain in place.
All other disaster regulations will fall away at midnight tonight.
Oh ok. All is normal, so …
… masks will be auto spare parts fore some time. 😦
Okay, weekend now. Cya latex …
