From Tuesday, for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic started, South African schools will be fully reopened after Cabinet announced on Monday night that the rotational system would be ended with immediate effect. News24 reports that, while the country remains on ‘Alert Level 1’, Cabinet also however changed the rules for self-isolation. According to the new guidelines people who test positive for Covid-19, but display no symptoms, will no longer need to isolate, while those who test positive, with symptoms, will need to only isolate for 7 days rather the previous 10. Contacts of people who have tested positive will also no longer need to isolate unless they develop symptoms. The rationale for this, they said, was due to the proportion of people with immunity having risen in excess of 60-80%.
