I trust that you are all aware that, following the outbreak of COVID-19 both globally and nationally, the Government has ordered the closure of all tertiary education institutions country-wide for one month with immediate effect. In view of that, I order that no student is permissible to be in campus at and after 18.00 hrs today March 19, 2020 till the Government states otherwise.
A special arrangement shall be put in place for students who have not completed their examinations to do so sometime later.
Note: The closure order applies to students; workers will continue with their regular duties as usual. However, workers who are due for annual leave are encouraged to take their leaves during this time. We (both workers and students) are strongly advised to take serious precautions against infection, e.g., avoiding body contacts and regularly washing hands with disinfectants. Corona virus and the consequential infections are real. The College is going to place water buckets and disinfectants in some selected locations; you are all encouraged to use that when you get in and out of offices. Please take precautions off-campus as well.
