The university’s email went on to add that swab tests are being conducted for all students returning from high-risk areas and active efforts have been made to place these students under isolation as well.

“We would like to assure staff, students and parents that the case is an isolated case and has immediately been attended to upon identification.” The university also declared that they are working closely with the Ministry of Health (MOH) on how to proceed with the situation. It was also said that MOH conducted disinfection on campus today (29 September) as a precautionary measure.

UTP has also set up a COVID Response Team and has been very strict with adhering to all SOPs and taking extra preventive measures to ensure no outbreak of the virus takes place.
