If you own a website that has a domain name that ends in .za the government has requested that you add a link to your website which will point to the official South Africa Covid-19 website, somewhere on your website.
We can confirm that this is a legitimate legislative request from the Communications Minister of South Africa, Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams. More information can be found here.
There is currently no-repercussions or compliance date, so currently adding this to your website is at your discretion, we do believe that there is value in adding this to our website, as spreading information about Covid-19 is vital to us as a country overcoming this virus.
We believe that if a business does business in South Africa, they should do their part and add this link to their website regardless of what their domain ends in, which is why we’ve created this free WordPress Covid-19 plugin to make it easy to add to your website.
