Cabinet Approves Changes to Alert Level 1 Regulations

February 2, 2022

The Presidency

Those who test positive for Covid-19 with no symptoms do not have to isolate.

This is one of the changes to Adjusted Alert Level 1 Regulations approved by cabinet at a special cabinet meeting earlier this week.

In a statement, the presidency confirmed that South Africa has exited the fourth wave at a national level.

Other changes approved by cabinet include:

• Isolation period reduced from 10 to 7 days for those with a positive test and symptoms; and
• Contacts do not have to isolate unless they develop symptoms.

The presidency indicated that the changes follow a substantial increase in the number of people with immunity to Covid-19.

The presidency also announced that all schools will return to full-time learning.

The changes to Adjusted Alert Level 1 Regulations apply with immediate effect.
