The UHAS COVID-19 Testing Centre has been opened to members of the general public who need the test to fulfill immigration or other official requirements as well as for voluntary purposes.
From a notice published by the University on their website, persons in need of a test result must present themselves for their samples to be collected and come with photocopies of a valid passport when it is an immigration requirement. For other purposes, any valid National ID cards would be accepted with a recent passport photograph.
The testing services are charged depending on the turnaround time the client request. Those in for regular 24-hour results would pay an amount of GHC 350 while expedite services would be done within 3hr 30Min for GHC 450.
The collection of samples would be done either at the Testing Centre on their main campus in Sokode or the Ho Teaching Hospital in Ho.
In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, the University of Health and Allied Sciences took a leadership role in setting up a Testing Centre as part of their contributions to the fight against the disease.
The University has provided the contact details of Dr. Ayivor-Djanie +233 (0) 24 454 5878 to reach out to for all the voluntary and immigration testing.
