The Proteas returned from India on Wednesday and went straight into a 14-day self-isolation period as a precaution against coronavirus infection.
Having had the first of their three-match ODI tour washed out, the rest of the visit was postponed after both the South African and Indian governments moved to stop the spread of the pandemic.
As a result, the 16 players and staff have taken appropriate measures.
CSA’s Chief Medical Officer Shuaib Manjra says: “We’ve recommended that all players self-isolate and social distance themselves for a minimum of 14 days because I think it’s proper guidance to protect people around them.
“In that period, should any of them have any symptoms or any other factors of concern, we will ensure we investigate appropriately and manage it accordingly.”

Meanwhile, CSA interim CEO Jacques Faul called on all cricketing bodies to do the “right thing” and not continue with any activities.
