TRAVEL DISCLAIMER - IMPORTANT!
Travellers testing positive for COVID-19 are presumably asymptomatic. While false positive COVID-19 PCR tests do occur, false negative tests are frequently seen, especially in asymptomatic patients. Subsequent tests may prove negative depending on a range of factors including but not limited to the shedding rate of the virus, immune response and sample quality. Drs Shaw, Roux & Partners takes no responsibility for ANY claims of whatsoever nature or any consequential losses relating to test results falling within the aforementioned category. Furthermore, Dr Shaw, Roux and partners will make every effort to ensure the timely analysis of the sample, however we cannot take responsibility for reimbursing missed flights or other costs as a result of test results not being available.
