The management of Lagos State University, Ojo, has mandated all members of the university community to adhere to all the preventive protocols as designed by NCDC to curtail any spread of Corona Virus in the institution.
The measures according to the management in a release by the Centre for Information Press and Public Relations include compulsory and proper use of facemask in public places; regular hand washing with soap and water or use of alcohol based sanitizer; to ensure physical distance of 2metres; maintenance of 50 percent occupancy rate of halls, classrooms, offices, worship centres among others and temperature checks at entrances.
“This is as a result of the recent increase in the number of positive cases being reported and increase occupancy rate at the Isolation Centres. This has necessitated the need for proactive measures to mitigate spread of the infection on our campuses.”
It should be recalled that Lagos State government over the weekend announced the possibility of a third wave of Covid-19 pandemic in the state.
The entrances to the campuses already have water taps for hand washing by all visitors, students inclusive. Veronica buckets, Infra-Red thermometers and Alcohol based sanitizer had been distributed to all faculties and Centres.
Management insists on the enforcement of these items. Deans, Directors, Faculty Members, Heads of Units, Members of Staff, Security Officers, Porters and Cleaners assigned to faculties, buildings and halls are mandated to ensure adherence.
Students are also enjoined to make provisions for personal facemasks and hand sanitizers to further enhance the efforts of the University Management
