COVID-19: University Of Ibadan Bans Visitors
As part of measures to curb the spread of the Covid-19, the University of Ibadan, Oyo State has henceforth banned all unauthorized visitors from visiting the institution.
Registrar of the University, Olubunmi Faluyi, issued a statement where she state that the institution had to take the decision from allowing visitors in order to protect the students since the 3rd wave of the Covid 19 surge came in.
She said: “Management has noted the third wave of COVID-19 pandemic, the recently discovered Delta variant and the placement of some states (including Oyo State) on red alert by the Federal Government.
“The fact that the University of Ibadan Health Services has not recorded any confirmed case of COVID-19 or an increase in flu-related/flu-like symptoms (for this season/time of the year) in the last three months suggests that if we are proactive in observing all health safety protocols, we can effectively prevent and spare the UI community from the third wave/new variant of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“All hands must be on deck, especially in the Halls of Residence, in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Each person must take direct responsibility of his/her health safety.
“The following should be strictly adhered to in halls of residence: No unauthorized visitors. No unscreened travellers/visitors. No squatters.
“Violators of health safety protocols must be promptly reported to appropriate authorities,”
