Regulations relating to the movement of children in South Africa will be eased on Monday, 1 June 2020, as the country moves to coronavirus (COVID-19)  Alert Level 3.

South Africa has been in lockdown since 26th March 2020 following the declaration of a national state of disaster amid a global COVID-19 pandemic.

The lockdown in South Africa, which started at Level 5, then moved to Level 4, regulated the movement of people in the country in an effort to contain the spread of the virus.

The Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs has issued regulations and requirements to legally move children between parents and caregivers.

South African schools will reopen under Level 3 lockdown for grade 7 and 12 learners. GoGTA has also specified the documents required for those transporting children to schools.
