The management of the Federal High Court (FHC) has scheduled Monday for “sample collection for COVID-19 testing.”
In a circular on Friday in Abuja, staff were informed the sample collection is planned to take place within the court premises.
A Senior Medical Officer 1, Dr. Adaora Keazor, who signed the circular for the court’s Chief Registrar, said the FHC was working with the Department of Public Health on the exercise.
