Joburg Weekly Guide COVD-19 updates
Week one of #LockdownSA has almost come to an end. How did the first seven days treat you? We must admit, it feels a little strange not being able to go out and about in the city to explore and discover all its hidden gems. But we’ll all be back out there in no time. In the meantime, we’ve got a collection of at-home entertainment to ensure you have plenty to keep you busy, active, sane and productive. Keep safe. 
Other than staying home during the next few days to avoid spreading COVID-19 further than it has already reached, here’s a friendly reminder of what you need to know about #LockdownSA, what you can and can’t do and more.
One of the things we are allowed to do during the 21-day national lockdown is head to malls and stores offering essential services so we can stock up on our medications, supplies and groceries. Here are a few malls in Joburg and Pretoria that’ll be operating during the lockdown, however, only select stores will be open. Find out more here.

The City of Gold has become the near reflection of a ghost town. From around the web, here are a handful of pictures we've compiled to show you what the world looks like from outside the comfort of our own homes during the #21DayLockdown. We've never seen the city like this before!

Hang in there and have a good week.
