PUBLIC NOTICE ON MANDATORY IN-BOUND PASSENGERS TEST FOR COVID-19
It has been reported severally through notification from Port Health Services, NCDC, the Lagos State Biobank and Accredited Private Laboratories carrying out COVID-19 tests that inbound passengers arriving Nigeria are breaching the COVID-19 protocols.
We have on good authority that some passengers having registered and paid for COVID-19 test have failed to report to assigned private laboratories after completion of their seven days isolation.
Lagos State COVID-19 Lab Consortium through the Lagos State Bio-Bank hereby calls on all inbound passengers who had previously registered and made payment either through the Nigeria International Travel Portal NITP portal or through the Lagos State Bio-bank portal to mandatorily present themselves for the COVID-19 PCR test as scheduled.
If the scheduled date is past, kindly reach out to the assigned laboratory or Lagos State Bio-bank with immediate effect to re-schedule this test as a matter of urgency. Failure to test on the due date attracts possible sanction by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19. This opportunity to re-schedule for those who have missed previous schedule is open for another two (2) weeks from the date of this publication.
Persons who are in this category would be required to adhere to all restrictions, in line with provisions under the Quarantine Act of the Country.
If you are in Lagos State and wish to rebook your test or get your sample collected, kindly contact the Lagos State Biobank via email on firstname.lastname@example.org; or our logistics arm on email@example.com
