What measures have Al-Shazia implemented in their workplace?
We have implemented a series of preventative health measures for our colleagues at our warehouse, our store and our offices — everything from increasing the frequency and intensity of cleaning to adjusting our practices in order to ensure the recommended social distancing guidelines. Alhamdulillah, none of our employees have had any symptoms or tested positive for COVID-19.

What is the coronavirus situation like in South Africa?
Our businesses are based in Durban, where the number of coronavirus cases is very low. The South African government has taken some of the strictest measures in the world to prevent the spread of the virus and to return life back to normal as soon as possible.

Can I catch the virus from a package?

  • There are no known cases of the virus being spread by contact with a package.

  • We package and send our goods from our warehouse in Durban and typically the transit time is at least 3/5 days before the package reaches you.

  • Recent scientific studies have shown that the virus cannot survive that long on clothing or packaging.


The World Health Organization has said the likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperatures is also low. You can find the latest information on COVID-19 on the information pages of the World Health Organization which you can find here: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

It is unlikely the virus can survive long in transit and the chances of getting Coronavirus from delivered packages is minimal.
