  • Africa Games Week 2021 – COVID Policy

    While we are excited to welcome visitors again for an in-person event at Africa Games Week 2021 we are mindful that we are still in the midst of a global pandemic and as the organisers of Africa Games Week your safety is our top priority. With this in mind please note the following precautions we have put in place for Africa Games Week 2021


    • Masks must be worn at all times


    You must wear a mask that is fit for purpose (such as cloth or medical

    masks) at all times while attending Africa Games Week 2021. Face coverings that do not comply with best practices (such as buffs or bandanas) will not be permitted. Persons without appropriate masks will be denied entry into the event.


    • You must be fully vaccinated to attend the event


    Admission to the event will only be permitted to persons who can demonstrate, by providing a copy of a valid government-issued vaccine certificate or equivalent, that they have been fully vaccinated. In addition, we will require attendees to meet the following additional requirements; admission will only be allowed if it has been:

    • 4 weeks if you received a single-dose injection (Johnson&Johnson);
    • 12 days after the second injection for two-dose vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca);


    • Social Distancing must be adhered to


    Visitors are encouraged to maintain a distance of 1.5m from other visitors for the duration of the event. To assist with this we will be limiting the number of people allowed into the venues and arranging the seating in such a way that social distancing will be enforced.


    • Temperature and details will be taken on entry


    In line with local government protocols, we will maintain a register of people admitted into the event along with taking their temperature. People who have a fever (indicated by a temperature of over 37 degrees C) will be denied entry into the venue. In addition, all visitors will be required to have their hands sanitised on entry, and we will encourage visitors to sanitise frequently.


    • Hygiene measures to be observed


    During the event: 

    • All handles, door handles, light switches and commonly used surfaces to be cleaned with sanitiser daily;
    • Hand cleansers will be made available to everyone (unless they have their own).


    • No eating or drinking inside 


    In addition to the above measures please be advised of the following other restrictions in place in South Africa.

    • There is a curfew in place from 23h00 to 04h00. You will be required to be in your hotel or place of residence during these times.
    • Bars, restaurants and other hospitality businesses are open, but in line with curfew will close at 22h00 each day.
    • Nightclubs are closed
    • You must wear a face mask while out in public
