COVID-19 Information | Protocols:

INORMS Congress Update: COVID-19:

• The South African Government updated its COVID-19 guidelines during June 2022, and the 2022 INORMS Committee have adapted accordingly

• Delegates travelling to South Africa do not have to submit vaccination certificates nor negative PCR tests and mask are not mandatory
• The organising committee will continue to follow developments and adapt as per government restrictions and inform attendees

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) - We would like to highlight protocols when attending an event (conference | workshop | forum) in person in South Africa:
•  Sanitize | Wash your hands as frequently as possible.
•  Social Distancing of 1.5m.
•  Limitation of numbers allowed within a venue will apply according to the regulations of the South African Government.

NOTE: The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough, and tiredness. Other symptoms that are less common and may affect some patients include aches and pains, nasal congestion, headache, conjunctivitis, sore throat, diarrhoea, loss of taste or smell or a rash on skin or discoloration of fingers or toes. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but only have very mild symptoms.
Most people (about 80 per cent) recover from the disease without needing hospital treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart and lung problems, diabetes, or cancer, are at higher risk of developing serious illness. However, anyone can catch COVID-19 and become seriously ill.
People of all ages who experience fever and/or cough associated with difficulty breathing/shortness of breath, chest pain/pressure, or loss of speech or movement should seek medical attention immediately. If possible, it is recommended to call the healthcare provider or facility first, so the patient can be directed to the right clinic. Information from www.sacoronavirus.co.za
