Rector of Unsyiah, Prof. Dr. Ir. Samsul Rizal, M.Eng. IPU issued a circular about the protocol for academic and non-academic activities, education personnel, task forces, and crisis centers in preventing the spread of covid-19.
Circular letter Number: B / 1491 / UN11 / KP.11.00 / 2020 contains several decisions aimed at preventing and protecting all Unsyiah academicians and education personnel as well as external parties from the covid-19 outbreak.
Face-to-face lectures were replaced with other methods, such as using Unsyiah e-learning facilities or the provision of teaching materials or assignments via e-mail and social media or other online media.
The decision to limit academic and non-academic activities made the Unsyiah campus look deserted on Tuesday (3/17/2020). Based on the observation of Unsyiah PR, activities in various faculties look empty. No activity in progress. The entrance to the lecture hall is also tightly locked. Parking which is usually overflowing, now looks deserted. Unsyiah Library Services were also stopped. In fact, the absence of a fingerprint intended for Unsyiah employees was temporarily canceled.
Based on the circular, this situation will last for two weeks starting from March 17-30, 2020. This method is carried out as a social distancing step to suppress the spread of the coronavirus. (Unsyiah PR / fer)
