South Africa Moves to Lockdown Level 3 Come June 1st
President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced a countrywide move from level four to level three lockdown as of June 1. Although alcohol will be on sale, under strict conditions for home consumption, when the country moves to level three, cigarettes and other tobacco products will remain banned. More South Africans will be able to go back to work, and the first wave of students would return to school and tertiary institutions, despite concerns from parents and teachers unions.
