In the Minister's new government gazette, Dlamini-Zuma said that it is not mandatory for children who are younger than six years old to wear masks in public.

The Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) clearly states:

The wearing of a mask is mandatory for every person when in a public place, excluding a child under the age of six years

A child under six years old can wear a mask in public should they want or should parents want them to.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said that children wearing masks, "is based on the safety and overall interest of the child and the capacity to appropriately use a mask with minimal assistance".

However, should anyone above the age of six years old neglect to wear a mask when out in public and does not comply with instruction from an enforcement officer will receive a fine or even be imprisoned.

Should you be wearing a mask, make sure that it not only covers your mouth but that it covers your nose as well.
