Campus Advisory | COVID-19

Campus Advisory | COVID-19

The Ministry of Health and Wellness has confirmed the first known case of the Corona Virus, COVID-19 in Jamaica.

The UWI Mona Campus wishes to assure members of our community that the health and welfare of all students and staff are priority and so all plans and decisions made will be in the best interest of all members of our community.

A University Task Force and subsequently a Campus Emergency Committee were established in February to prepare for and manage the threat posed by the Coronavirus, COVID-19. Both teams are now positioned to activate their response plans, working in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health.

The Campus Emergency Committee is chaired by Pro Vice-Chancellor and Campus Principal, Professor Dale Webber and Clinical Director of the University Health Centre Dr. Blossom Anglin-Brown is the Deputy Chair. This team comprises multi-disciplined academics, administrators and student representatives.

We understand that members of our community maybe anxious at this time, but we urge the need to be calm and exercise precautions as advised by the Ministry of Health and Wellness and other relevant health agencies.

If you think you need support or recognise someone who does, do not hesitate to contact the University Counselling Service in the University Health Centre or through the UWIHELPS telephone counselling service: 876-294-0042.

Please continue to follow updates and advisories issued by the Ministry of Health, and the Campus.
