PARLIAMENT'S COVID-19 RESULTS NOT YET KNOWN.

The attention of Parliament has been drawn to reports by Starrfmonline that two Members and thirteen Staff of Parliament have tested positive for COVID 19 after the mandatory testing exercise undertaken by Parliament last week.

Parliament would like to state categorically that the results of the tests are not yet known and so the report by Starrfmonline is not true. Parliament would therefore like to urge Starrfmonline to pull down the said report and update its audience with the relevant information to the effect that the results from the tests are unknown to Parliament.

The confidentiality protocol of testing for COVID-19 is that, those who test positive will be called directly by the testing team and be taken through the necessary steps for quarantine and treatment. Officially Parliament is unaware of any such call and has no official figures from the National COVID-19 response team.

Meanwhile, Parliament will like to assure the Public that it remains committed to ensuring the safety and avoidance of possible spread of the disease in Parliament. Citizens are encouraged to call or reach Parliament on line with their enquiries and only attend upon the House if it becomes absolutely necessary.
