The Prime Minister has announced that, in light of the COVID-19 problem, schools are to remain closed until “the end of Easter.” The University should be guided by the Government’s measures, and accordingly, we shall remain closed for face-to-face instruction from now until April 14, 2020.
Among other things, the Prime Minister has also announced that there are to be no gatherings of more than 10 persons, and that all persons arriving in the country on and after March 18, 2020 are to remain in quarantine for a further 14 days after March 25, 2020. Persons over 75 years of age are to remain at home, and public servants over 65 years should not go to work.
We continue to live in the context of uncertainty. Where possible, remote classes may continue, and we hope to have an increase in remote teaching. Such teaching will not lead to persons without remote access being placed at a disadvantage. Please await further notices on this issue.
Some of the non-teaching activities will need to continue. As before, I will rely on the Committee chaired by Ms Genefa Hibbert for guidance. Also as before, various Heads of Units and Deans will be called upon to make decisions about activities to be undertaken in their respective Units, Faculties and Colleges.
We are mindful that the Examination period was scheduled to begin on April 17, 2020. This will need to be amended. We will undertake various consultations and will provide further information about examination adjustments and other matters in due course.
