All University of The Bahamas campuses remain closed and operations are continuing remotely.
The necessary protective and sanitization measures are being implemented at University campuses for the eventual resumption of on-site operations. Sanitizers are being installed throughout the University’s campuses. Plexiglass screens are being installed in all heavily trafficked areas. Additionally, offices and buildings are being inspected for mold and cleaned constantly.
Nonetheless, the University has been advised that two of its employees have tested positive for COVID-19. These persons were operating from an isolated area. The Ministry of Health’s Surveillance Unit has initiated contact tracing to determine the level of exposure to any essential employee.
Out of an abundance of caution, an external company has been contracted to conduct a thorough cleaning and disinfection throughout the campus.
Employees have been reminded that if they are not feeling well, and are exhibiting any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, to stay at home, contact their medical provider, or the COVID-19 hotline, and follow the advice given.
The University takes seriously the health and well-being of all faculty, students and staff and the University community is advised to continue following the directives of the Bahamas Ministry of Health and the Emergency Orders.
