What are the curfew hours and closing times in designated hotspots?

 

As of 3 December 2020, the national government has been implementing a system of designated hotspots, where slightly stricter rules apply due to higher infection rates.

At the moment (as of 15 December 2020) these are the designated hotspots:

  • Nelson Mandela Bay Metro (Eastern Cape)
  • Garden Route District (Western Cape)
  • Sarah Baartman District (Eastern Cape)

The following rules apply in areas designated as hotspots:

Movement of persons

There is a curfew from 10pm to 4am, during which time everybody needs to be at their place of residence. You are allowed to be outside of your residence during curfew if you have a permit (click here for more information).
