In his announcement last week, President Ramaphosa painted a picture on how the country would shift from Level 5 to Level 4 of the corona virus (COVID-19) lockdown as of 1 May 2020.
Some companies will be allowed to re-open but will do so under specific conditions. Furthermore, they will have to adhere to detailed health and safety precautions to protect their staff. In addition to this, plans in the workplace will be put in place to prevent the spread of infection and monitor the spread of the virus.
“All businesses that are permitted to resume operations will be required to do so in a phased manner, first preparing the workplace for a return to operations, followed by the return of the workforce in batches of no more than one-third. In some cases, a sector will not be able to return to full production during Level 4 while the risk of infection remains high,” Ramaphosa said.
Here’s what it means for Cash Converters stores:
Level 4 means all Cash Converters stores are allowed to re-open their doors on May 2, 2020, to buy and sell limited second-hand household items.
