Members of Parliament and all staff of the parliamentary service are expected to be tested for COVID-19 on Wednesday.

The order was given by Speaker, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye today when the House resumed sitting of the second meeting of the Fourth Session of the 7th Parliament.

According to the Speaker, the move is to ensure that Parliamentarians and the staff are safe and persons who may have the virus are quickly isolated and treated.

“Whiles, there is no scientifically approved vaccine, we should adhere to all laid down hygiene protocols which are requisite for keeping us safe. In addition to observing the established protocols, I have directed on the authority of the parliamentary service board, the clerk of Parliament and the Parliament’s medical officers to liaise with appropriate institutions to immediately conduct testing of all honourable members and staff of the parliamentary service for COVID-19 and I request your co-operation in this enterprise,” the Speaker said.

For this Sitting, Parliament is expected to consider over 36 bills, key amongst them being the Affirmative Action Bill, the Public Universities Bill as well as the National Ambulance Amendment Bill, 2020.
