FG orders compulsory COVID-19 tests for Corps members

The Federal Government has ordered compulsory COVID-19 tests for all prospective corps members.

It had earlier announced the reopening of all National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camps from November 10, 2020.

National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, stated this during a briefing in Abuja on Thursday.

Orientation camps have been shut since March to checkmate spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Aliyu said: “We have developed guidelines with the NCDC (Nigeria Centre for Disease Control) and the NYSC in the preparation for the reopening of the orientation camps on the 10th of November, 2020.

“The PTF has also arranged additional safeguards to include the testing of all corpers and staff in the camps for COVID-19 tests prior to commencement of the orientation programmes.”
