Shuaibu Ibrahim, NYSC’s director-general, had on Friday released postings for the new batch of the scheme as camps open from January 19.

In its “safety protocols” issued ahead of the orientation course, however, the NYSC said the prospective corps members must have a clearance certificate showing they are not COVID-19 positive before being allowed into the camp.

“It is imperative to restate that everyone coming into the NYSC camps must undergo COVID-19 test, Corps Members, and officials alike. Only those that test negative are admitted into the camps,” it said.

The scheme added that the prospective corps members are also required to fill the COVID-19 test self-reporting format on their dashboards before printing their call-up letters.

“PCMs are to download and print slip generated for presentation at orientation camps. PCMS must adhere strictly to their assigned date of reporting to the orientation camps,” it added.

“No PCMS will be allowed into the camps if they come before their appointment date. Upon arrival at Camp, PCMS must subject themselves to COVID-19 test.
