Enhanced Security Protocol at The UWI Mona Campus

In keeping with the Covid -19 protocol established by the Government of Jamaica, The UWI Mona Campus has suspended most face to face activities on campus including teaching, meetings and gatherings with more than ten persons, thus reducing daily traffic on the campus.  The daily campus traffic/population has also been significantly reduced as a number of staff are working remotely and most students residing in the Halls have returned home. This reduced traffic increases the risk of theft and other criminal acts on the campus.
