Travel register


An international travel ban is presently in place, and all other internal travelling for business or private matters should be postponed for now, in line with national directives to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

It is the responsibility of each of us to report any international travel to or from South Africa from 1 March 2020 onwards to enable the tracking of contacts should this be needed.

Please share this Memo with other staff and students to ensure that the register is as complete as possible. This register will also enable pro-active planning once staff and students return to the University.

Travel protocols
When our staff and students return from travelling, please adhere to the following:

  • Staff and students who have returned from areas identified as high-risk or where there is a confirmed occurrence of COVID-19 should self-quarantine and monitor themselves for symptoms for 14 days, taking their temperature twice a day.
  • If they develop even a mild cough or low-grade fever (i.e. a temperature of 37.3C or more), they should stay at home and self-isolate. This means avoiding close contact (two metres or nearer) with other people, including family members.
  • In the event of developing symptoms, staff and students should contact the University’s Hotline on 0800 504 911 or the National Toll Free Hotline on 0800 029 999 and provide them with details of their recent travel and symptoms.
