Lockdown: Changes to Visitation Rights

The Department of Social Development has published a new directive providing further clarity around visitation rights under the country’s level 3 lockdown.

The directive came into effect following its publication on Thursday (2 July) and makes amendments to the original Social Development directions which were published at the end of March.

Among  these changes are rules around visitation rights at a number of social centres and old age homes.

The directive states that visits are permitted during alert level 3 of the national state of disaster at the following:

  • Substance Abuse and Treatment Centres and Halfway Houses;
  • Child and Youth Care Centres;
  • Shelters for Victims of Crimes and Violence including Gender Based Violence (GBV);
  • Residential Facilities for Persons with Disabilities.

Notably, visits to old age homes and frail care facilities are still prohibited under the country’s level 3 lockdown.
