I am essential staff and will be required to report to work. How will the University protect me while on campus?

The University has taken care to ensure a sanitary environment for staff with additional sanitization of frequent touch areas such as door knobs, rails etc. We have also manufactured our own supply of hand sanitizer through the Departments of Chemistry and Basic Medical Sciences to alleviate shortage in supply across campus. The relevant protective gear will be provided to teams that will require same. Additionally, all members of staff that are required to be at work are asked to follow the instituted protocols to ensure the safety of the campus community. Team members are also encouraged to practice social distancing – maintaining a distance of 2 metres or 6 feet from others. Frequent hand-washing is also encouraged. If you have an underlying medical condition (hypertension, diabetes, asthma etc.), please report to your manager/HOD (you do not need to specify what the condition is).
