Covid-19 testing of journalists through media houses

Covid-19 testing of journalists through media houses

This communication serves to inform you that MISA Malawi has made an arrangement with Ministry of Information that where there is a need, journalists should be tested for Covid-19 through their media houses.

In this arrangement journalists can be tested through their media house (s) when and where there are confirmed cases within a media house or there are individuals who have clear symptoms.

MISA Malawi would like to commend the government for this consideration especially because journalists, by the nature of their job, are exposed to situations where they can contract the virus.

Do not hesitate to contact MISA Malawi when there is a need for Covid-19 testing at your media house. Please continue to stay safe as we serve the nation in the provision of information in this difficult time.
