Lockdown regulations: Restaurants propose alcohol solution


    JOHANNESBURG – The Restaurants Association of South Africa has come up with a plan to resume serving alcohol in eateries in a proposal in a letter to President Cyril Ramaphosa.

    The association said the government should allow the sale and distribution of alcohol for restaurants with valid liquor licences.

    In areas with high numbers of alcohol-related trauma, tougher restrictions or bans can be imposed.

    The association says alcohol should only be served if the customer orders a main meal, and they will be limited to two drinks per meal.

    The association says it’s pleading with the Presidency to consider its proposal so the industry can limit a job’s bloodbath.
