Breaking: Government announces restrictions on liquor sales

No liquor may be sold or transported during the lockdown

In accordance with the new COVID-19 Disaster Management Regulations, the sale of liquor is prohibited effective from 23:59 Thursday, 26 March, said minister of police Bheki Cele.

Before Cele’s announcement, there had been a number of restrictions and limitations on sales, dispensing and transportation of liquor.

THE SALE OF LIQUOR IS PROHIBITED FOR THE NEXT 21 DAYS
“Last weekend with the previous COVID-19 Disaster Management Regulations, we were inundated with requests for clarity and a lot of other questions around the selling and consumption of liquor. This time around with the national lockdown, the selling of liquor is strictly prohibited,” Cele said.

This is also applicable to those supermarkets with liquor licences. No liquor will be sold anywhere by anyone during the 21-day period of the lockdown.

The movement of liquor between any two points is also strictly prohibited.

WHAT IS A LOCKDOWN?
President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that a nationwide lockdown will start from midnight on Thursday 26 March, lasting until midnight 16 April. According to the president, “individuals will not be allowed to leave their homes except under strictly controlled circumstances, such as to seek medical care, buy food, medicine and other supplies or collect a social grant".

The 21-day lockdown is aimed at flattening the curve. Read more details of the nationwide lockdown, plus get the latest updates on COVID-19 in Cape Town.
