Last week, the lab was closed in order to expand and upgrade it so it can perform more tests per day. This upgrade has now been completed, and the Ministry of Health recently inspected the lab and gave the go-ahead to operate the facility.

The laboratory is due to reopen on Saturday, 6th February 2021. It will be managed by local medical company Crystal Medicals.
