Directions on Reopening of Schools Amended

January 17, 2022

Department of Basic Education

Directions on the reopening of schools have been amended.

The basic education department published the amended Directions in Government Gazette 45753 in terms of Disaster Management Act Regulations.

A new paragraph (q) is inserted in subdirection (2) of Direction 11.

It stipulates that spectators at a sport event are permitted with the number of persons permitted limited to the number prescribed under the Regulations in respect of gatherings for the adjusted Alert Level in place at the time.

If the venue is too small to hold the prescribed number of persons without adequate social distancing, then not more than 50 percent of the capacity of the venue may be used.

The amendment came into effect on the date of publication.
