This document serves a draft framework for the risk-adjusted strategy to bring different sectors of the economy back to work.
Classification of sector follows the Standard Industrial Classifications (SIC) as published by Statistics South Africa. Where an entire division is permitted, it should be assumed that all subgroupings are permitted as well. Where only certain subgroupings are specifically permitted within a division, it should be assumed that other subgroupings are not.In the document, when moving between levels, the green text means additions or changes from the prior level.
For example, Level 4 adds forestry,logging and related services to Agriculture. It is now market in green in Level 4.
