The Ministry of Health (MOHQL) has an official webpage as well as a Facebook page for Covid-19.

On the 10th March 2021, 6am, a sanitary curfew was instituted in Mauritius following the locally acquired cases of COVID-19, with the initial end date of 25th of March 2021.
While the vaccination of frontline health professionals and over 60s had already begun, we are well short of the herd immunity required to achieve population protection.
We have therefore re-introduced our free consultations for urgent medical issues during the lockdown.
As our volunteer doctors are giving up their own time, we might not be able to provide a 24/7 service. We will however attempt to help as many people as possible.
We have grown from our experience of the last lockdown and are capable of delivering an efficient telemedicine service, and make appropriate referrals as needed.
Please stay safe and continue to maintain sanitary precautions when you are out and about.
Mauritians are locked in right now and need precise information.
Considering the amount of news in circulation it is essential to have only ONE single precise reference source.
You will learn about precautions, which are key to fight the virus effectively, ex. approved masks.
Access the World Health Organisation (WHO) now.
We are a group of doctors, more than willing to help Mauritius get well, as soon as possible.
We have been providing telehealth to all the Mauritians who are not feeling well during the lockdown, through this platform and our Facebook page. We have the largest collective experience in telemedicine in Mauritius and will provide you with high quality care.
We want to avoid people going out to hospitals or pharmacies unnecessarily & only do so if really needed.
We want to guide them through video, audio calls, and text to the best of our capabilities.
We want to help reassure you and your family, that we as doctors, we are here for you.
As one people, let’s fight it together.
