Every SA website must promote the government's portal on Covid-19

Every website with a domain name that ends in .za – from government portals to private blogs – must now link to the government's main Covid-19 page on its front page.

As of Thursday, every website with a domain name that ends in .za – including every company website that uses the .co.za suffix, every organisation in .org.za, and every academic institution in .ac.za – must link to the South African government's Covid-19 portal at sacoronavirus.co.za.

That link must be "visible", and must be on the front page of the website, according to regulations gazetted by communications minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams.

The regulations do not say what will happen to websites that do not comply, and do not specify a deadline by when websites must be updated, though the rules are immediately in force.
