Oi! Leave me out of this...

The vast majority of the lockdown (if they have one) will be between Christmas and New Year. I get the logic behind it as there's several mass religious gathering during this period.
That can be done with 10 day lockdown but I expect the ANC looking at a 14day minimum for the next lockdown.
Those religious gatherings and such will happen regardless of what the ANC wants at this point in my opinion.
I know of a good many companies that used to have a "Christmas shutdown" that have taken the opportunity this year to break that expectation and are now going to work straight through and have told their staff that the Christmas break is a thing of the past now. They will get their 15 days leave to take whenever they want during the year rather than having to take it all during a forced break at the end of the year.
