Category News

South Africa is battling a severe third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic - with adjusted level 4 restrictions put in place by President Cyril Ramaphosa for the next two weeks, up until 11 July. 

On Sunday evening, 27 June, the president announced that South Africa will move to tighter restriction to curb the impact of a the more contagious Delta variant from India.  This Delta variant from India, is overtaking SA's beta variant, and was first detected in SA in March, and is now prevalent across five SA provinces - with Gauteng being the hardest hit. 

Under the adjusted level 4 measures, most economic activity to continue is expected to continue - with South Africans advised to go to work if they are unable to work remotely.

"Retail stores will remain open. Factories, mines, farms, & other businesses will continue to operate. Travel freely within your province"
However, the president did confirm reduced civil servants, under the adjusted restrictions.
Deeds office delays in registrations?
Property24 has contacted the Department of Land and Rural Development to confirm the impact of the adjusted levels due to the need for reduced staff compliment and is awaiting a response. Following the impact of the previous waves due to Deeds office closures, delays in deeds registrations can be expected under the current third wave.
Can you move?
And while all social gatherings have been prohibited and schools will close from Wednesday, only leisure travel has been restricted. Travel to Gauteng, which is currently dealing with about 60% of the current infections, is limited for work only or for people to return home.
Are evictions allowed?
As per adjusted level 3, no evictions are allowed under adjusted level 4. Landlords may apply for an eviction order, but it will be suspended or "stayed until after the lapse or termination of the national state of disaster unless the court is of the opinion that it is not just or equitable to suspend or stay the order."
