FULL ADDRESS | SA remains on level 1, but no off-site booze sales for Easter weekend

Alcohol will not be allowed for off-site consumption over the Easter weekend, President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Monday night.

He also announced that the country would remain on level 1 lockdown, albeit with “a few adjustments”.

He said the tightened restrictions on alcohol were necessitated by “the role of alcohol in fuelling reckless behaviour”.

On-site consumption would be allowed, Ramaphosa said, but the sale for off-site consumption was “prohibited on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday”.
