Happy level 3 lockdown South Africa! It’s officially the 1st of June, and the country moves to lockdown level 3. The move to lockdown level 3 comes as part of the country’s phase-down approach to the COVID-19 outbreak. 

As minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma emphasized, as a country, the number of confirmed cases is rising, but we have managed to flatten the curve. Meaning that although we can lift the stringency on specific regulations, we will have to move with extreme caution. But here are the top 3 things you can enjoy while still maintaining social distancing and guilt-free: 

A jog and outdoor exercise between 06:00 and 18:00

A casual run doesn’t seem like a privilege, but after 67 days in lockdown, being able to resume individual outdoor workouts from 06:00 to 18:00 can do wonders for your mental health. Getting some fresh air and cardio will set you up for a productive day. Don’t forget to wear your cloth mask and maintain social distancing

Retail Therapy

Yes, you can enjoy online shopping at your leisure during the lockdown. You can’t get your hair done by a professional hairdresser yet, but you can buy products to do DIY treatments in the comfort of your home. You can virtually buy anything online; from grocery essentials to your favourite alcoholic beverages, fashion, fast food and other luxuries, all in the comfort of your home for delivery.

All e-c0mmerce businesses are permitted to operate and if you had intentions of taking your own business online, this is the most opportune time. Build your own e-commerce website in under 10 minutes with our online store builder

Drive-In Cinema 

Cape Town is resurrecting an old drive-in cinema tradition this lockdown. You can finally get that nostalgic feeling of watching blockbuster movies on a big screen while maintaining social distancing. Mother City Drive-In has announced it is in the process of launching a cinematic experience like no other

All the privileges that come with lockdown level 3 come with great responsibility.

  • Wear a cloth mask in public spaces and when accepting parcels from couriers
  • Maintain strict hygiene guidelines; wash your hands, sanitize surfaces and do not touch your face
  • Practice social distancing by only leaving your home when necessary
