Argentina (ENACOM) - Covid-19 Update
National government announced the extension of the quarantine until July 17th.
ENACOM and laboratories are located in Buenos Aires region where is having Covid-19 cases increased. Buenos Aires needs to go back to more restrictive phase of quarantine in order to avoid their health system to collapse. This phase will start on July 1st and end on July 17th, for now.
- Laboratories: all pending tests will be resumed since July 17th, unless labs get some special authorizations to work. If this happens, we will be noticed by next week.
- ENACOM: the new phase will not affect the entity work because they are all working from home. So, revision and signature processes will remain the same.
- Samples importation: customs working normally. Slight delays expected if samples get stuck due to customs agents have restrictions to go to work.
ENACOM made a mistake on issuance of res. 461/2020. The article 3 states that all certificates expiring between March 16 – June 30th, 2020, automatically will expire on August 30th, 2020.
