Private Sector Laboratory Testing for SARS-CoV-2 in Jamaica

‘JANAAC Approves COVID-19 Testing Sites’

The Ministry of Health & Wellness wishes to remind the public that the Jamaica National Agency for Accreditation (JANAAC), an agency of the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce, is the only local entity with the responsibility to accredit laboratories to conduct COVID-19 testing.

Private laboratories are advised to visit for information on accreditation for COVID-19 testing. The list of accredited entities is on the JANAAC website where members of the public can verify whether the lab they wish to engage for testing has been approved to conduct COVID-19 testing.
