The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has released Call-up Letters for Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) that will participate in the 2022 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Course.
The letters were released on Sunday. PCMs are expected to log on to the NYSC portal to print their call-up letters ahead of the official reporting to the various orientation camps across the country.
Meanwhile, the Director-General of National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Dr Ifedayo Adetifa has said that all PCMs must undergo COVID-19 test, and only those that test negative will be admitted to camps.
Adetifa said that in the event of any positive result, arrangements have been made with state health officials for the cases to be handled in designated treatment centers outside the orientation camp.
The NCDC DG also added that no single death has been recorded in any NYSC orientation camp since the outbreak of the pandemic in Nigeria till date.
He, however, advised PCMs to utilise the opportunity of the NYSC orientation course to complete their COVID-19 vaccination.
The DG said COVID-19 screening is compulsory while COVID-19 vaccination is optional.
