All prospective corps members will undergo mandatory COVID-19 tests ahead of the reopening of orientation camps nationwide, the Federal Government has said.

The FG also said all National Youth Service Corps orientation camps would reopen effective November 10, 2020.

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

“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,” Mr Aliyu said.

The orientation camps have been shut since March this year as part of measures to curtail the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
