True - just restrict the social gathering indoors. Anyway they cannot police spectators if country is open to visitors.

This is what came out of the Prime Minister's speech last night, Things dont look so good.  Worst is a Covid test is a must to enter, only 100 competitors no spectators at sport events.

The Honourable PM is saying that: the opening of borders will commence on the 1st October.
The crossing of borders is open to:
- Basotho business people
-Those that need health treatment
-Workers working in South Africa
- Students studying in RSA
- Foreigners
All will be expected to produce a Covid Negative Certificate,  there will be screening at the border.
 Restaurants open for sit down between 8a.m and 9p.m
 Sport is permitted  maximum 100 competitors no spectators
 All schools will be open Ministry of education will provide guidelines
 Parks are open
 Festivals should be outside
 Gyms should be outdoors
All these facilities shall follow Covid guidelines regarding safety and social distancing.
 ALEB (Association of Lesotho Bussiness)

What a mess, we still cannot cross daily to open our business's.  Even at level 1 we are being punished. Now 6 months with not crossing daily, Its getting out of hand now, how many visirors will get a covid test valid for 72 hrs just to enter and then when you leave you will have to get another one to enter back into SA. This is a sad situation.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

 
We are excited to build on the newly announced date for the 2020 Motul Roof of Africa, 9 - 12 December 2020 by providing some more information regarding the event.
 
It has been a long process since lockdown began and we finally see some light at the end of the tunnel. Positive announcements have given us the confidence to push forward with our plans.
 
With regards to COVID-19 and events, things are changing rapidly and we can only follow Government regulations. We will continually monitor the situation in the lead up to the Motul Roof of Africa and closer to the event exact regulations and procedures will be communicated to ensure everyone is adequately informed.
 
Key aspects of the Event:
 
The Motul Roof of Africa will be COVID-19 Compliant in accordance with Lesotho and MSA regulations.
 
As always we have a gold, silver and bronze class. There is NO QUALIFICATION CRITERIA for any of these classes.
 
The Motul Roof of Africa is a MSA SANCTIONED EVENT A minimum MSA One Event Club licence is needed to enter and participate.
 
NO SPECTATORS ARE CURRENTLY PERMITTED TO ATTEND EVENTS.
 
Rider + a maximum of 5 crew members will be permitted. All personnel will be required to fill out pre-event screening.
 
Round the Houses and EnduroX will not form part of the 2020 event to avoid mass gatherings in the Capital of Maseru, so the event will run as follows:
 
Wednesday COVID19 Compliant Verification Process (Includes rider pack collection, tracker and timing tag installation)
Thursday Time Trial for all classes
Friday Main Race Day 1
Saturday Main Race Day 2
 
We are working with our partners to have a mobile COVID-19 testing clinic available. Our medical team have ensured that hospitals will admit injured riders and we will have helicopters on standby at the race venue.
