Latest COVID-19 update
On 22 June 2022, the Minister of Health repealed all South Africa’s remaining COVID-19 pandemic safety measures, including the compulsory wearing of face masks. This follows a decline in the number of COVID-19 infections and related deaths.
South Africans are therefore no longer required to wear face masks in public indoor spaces or when using public transport. There is also no limit on the number of people attending public gatherings, and no more COVID-19 checks are done at the country’s borders.
