[LOCKDOWN RULES] Essential service workers will have to carry permits with them
The South African government has released the final lockdown regulations after a series of ministerial briefings this week.
The rules state that employers will have to complete official permits for the workers exempted during the 21-day period.
The government has provided a template of the permit required by essential personnel when traveling to and from work, as seen below.
If a worker does not have the permit with them when they are asked to present it, they will be instructed to return home, according to the regulations.
