Lockdown Adjust Alert Level 1
South Africa moves back to Level 1: Here's what you need to know
South Africa has officially moved back to COVID-19 lockdown Level 1. This was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa during his address to the nation on the 28th February 2021.
Here is a round-up of what you need to know about the move to Level 1 and accompanying regulations:
The President mentioned that the UIF’s special COVID-19 wage support would be extended until 15 March 2021 for those sectors of the economy that have not been able to operate over this period. However, he warned that the country’s public finances were extremely constrained, and that such relief measures could not remain in place indefinitely.
Re-opening of borders
The 20 land borders that were open before will remain open. The 33 land borders which were closed will remain closed.
Air Travel
International air travel is restricted to the following airports:
• OR Tambo International Airport:
• King Shaka International Airport;
• Cape Town International Airport:
• Lanseria International Airport; and
• Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport.
Long -haul flight departures and landings are permitted during the hours of curfew.
All international travellers arriving at the airports must provide a valid certificate of a negative COVID –19 test, recognised by the World Health Organisation, which was obtained not more than 72 hours before the date of travel.
In the event of the traveller's failure to submit a certificate as proof of a negative COVID -19 test, the traveller will be required to do an antigen test on arrival at his or her own cost and in the event of a traveller testing positive for COVID -19, he or she will be required to isolate him or herself at his or her own cost, for a period of 10 days.
Hotels, lodges, bed and breakfasts, timeshare facilities. resorts and guest houses are allowed full capacity of the available rooms for accommodation, with patrons observing a distance of at least one and a half metres from each other when in common spaces.
The maximum number of people allowed at any gathering is 100 people indoors or 250 people outdoors. Where the venue is too small to accommodate these numbers with appropriate social distancing, then no more than 50 per cent of the capacity of the venue may be used.
The nationwide curfew has been relaxed and will now be from 00h00 to 4am. Apart from permitted workers, no person may be outside their place of residence during curfew.
Establishments, including restaurants and bars, will need to close by no later than 23h00 in order to ensure their customers and staff are able to return home prior to the start of the curfew.
The sale of alcohol will be permitted, according to normal licence provisions. However, no alcohol may be sold during the hours of curfew.
Wearing of masks
The adjusted Level 3 regulations made every individual legally responsible for wearing a mask in public, and this requirement remains unchanged. A person who does not wear a cloth mask covering over the nose and mouth in a public place will be committing an offence and is at the risk of being arrested and prosecuted. On conviction, they will be liable to a fine or to imprisonment for a period not exceeding six months or to both a fine and imprisonment.

Easy English Centre was established in 2004 after identifying a need for English. It has since grown into a well recognized and trusted school with a proven track record.
Easy English Centre is the only language school in Pretoria that is accredited by ETDP Seta, which is the main body that monitors and controls skills developmentand the standard and quality of education.
It is a lot easier for our students to get accepted at major colleges and universities because we are assured by the above council, as English is one of the major requirements for admission. 
It is our aim at all times to maintain the highest quality service by offering the best course material, that is delivered by teachers with degrees and diplomas in addition to TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language).
Our students are made up of many different cultures and religions, with this in mind we are committed to sharing our knowledge with respect for this diversity.
It is our mission to ensure the growth and development of all our students to reach their full potential.


I like this school because teachers are friendly, the school is beautiful and classes are comfortable. I have made friends from different countries. My English is progressing quickly.
