You are allowed to walk your dog or go for a run during the national lockdown in South Africa.
There has been a discussion around whether people should jog and walk their dogs, the conclusion was that walks and jogging are not allowed. So basically, if you are found galavanting in the street, you will be arrested.
“Walking dogs and jogging, there shouldn’t be a problem with all of that. What we really want to avoid is people congregating in large numbers, big meetings where people are cramming themselves in” said Mkhize, Health Minister.
