Hi Everyone,
We hope and trust this email finds you and your family well and safe!!!
This is just an update with the progress of KR-XX21, and to re-assure you we are all systems go!!!

COVID SITUATION
Currently, it must be noted that South Africa has a VERY Low infection rate with a 95% Recovery rate as per the latest national Institute Health Department Statistics. (See “COVID19 SA UPDATES” on Facebook).
Full travel is allowed within South Africa, but most importantly International travellers are allowed to travel to South Africa.

When Flying to SA, International Competitors must do a PCR Test in own country before departing. When you arrive at Johannesburg International Airport, a mandatory PCR test will be done at the airport, results are given within a few hours.
KR Orga will also have a strict COVID-19 Protocol in place and a “Rally Bubble” at the Bivouacs for additional precaution.

NOTE: Should a person test positive on arrival at Johannesburg Airport, or after KR-XX21, KR Orga has arranged a solution for quarantine close to the airport.

In addition, at the end of KR-XX21, KR ORGA will also assist International Teams to do a PCR test at the last Bivouac, results will be issued with Internationally Recognised Covid-19 certificate.
YOUR HEALTH & SAFETY IS OUR 1ST PRIORITY!!!
