Spokesperson, Phathisa Mfuyo says they were given the green light to reopen public libraries and museums, next month - after an extensive risk assessment was conducted at all these facilities.

She says at libraries a limited number of people will be allowed in at a time. 

They'll introduce a staggered reopening plan - to ensure each facility is COVID-19 compliant. 

There'll be no guided tours at museums.
