As the country woke up to another level 3 lockdown, under amended restrictions, government published the regulations for the new normal in the government gazette.

On Tuesday, the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) and the Minister of Cooperative Governance, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Minister of Health, Zweli Mkhize, and Minister of Bheki Cele will host a briefing on Tuesday to unpack the restrictions and regulations.
