Minister Sisulu requested to facilitate removal of hospitality restrictions

Based on the spirit of the adjustments to Level 1 restrictions earlier this week, below are some of the practical requirements that are rendered obsolete, as well as the associated legislation:

  • Temperature checks and registers to record guests’ details (which guests find invasive and upsetting)
  • Social distancing restrictions
  • Banning of hotel buffets
  • Restrictions on number of guests in buildings and in vehicles
  • Restricted use of facilities

FEDHASA wrote to Minister Sisulu to request her intervention to have these restrictions removed, so as to assist the industry.

This letter and the contents were discussed with the Minister on Tuesday 1 February.  Click here to view the letter.
