Policy South Africa Allows Cigarette(Including Vape) Sales As Lockdown Restrictions Are Eased

On the 27th of March, South African authorities banned the sales of cigarettes as part of the current COVID-19 lockdown. Subsequently as restrictions are starting to be eased, cigarette sales are allowed to resume as of May 1st.

The bans on tobacco products and alcohol sales announced last month, which sadly included safer alternatives such as e-cigarettes and snus, had many angered. However, citing economic concerns, South Africa has now announced an easing of some lockdown restrictions beginning next month. Some businesses will be allowed to reopen, and a third of their employees can return to work.

As South Africa has set in place some of the most stringent coronavirus lockdown restrictions in the world, President Cyril Ramaphosa has said that people should remain at home as much as possible. Public gatherings remain banned, and the countrys borders will be kept closed, and while alcohol will remain banned, tobacco sales can resume.

Vapesourcing Opinion:

In many countries and a number of US jurisdictions, vape businesses have been deemed non-essential, and required to temporarily close their brick and mortar shops.

However, cigarettes remain widely available in stores deemed essential such as convenience stores. This has led many vapers smoke again, most of whom are former smokers using e-cigarettes in a bid to stay away from cigarettes.
