The University leadership will continue to monitor the situation, and any decision may be reviewed, as required. We appeal to all to practice the recommended precautionary measures, such as hygiene and social distancing, all the time.

We wish to remind all to remain vigilant and to adhere to the precautionary measures against Covid-19, and these include:  

  • Covering your nose and mouth when sneezing;
  • Washing your hands thoroughly and regularly with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand-rub;
  • Refraining from touching your face, eyes, nose and mouth; and
  • Staying home if you feel unwell. We are supposed to be at home because of the lockdown.
