Students and staff returning from China, who are well and do not display any symptoms of illness are allowed to come for class and work.  Those who have travelled to Wuhan should monitor their health closely and seek medical attention if they feel unwell, and inform their doctor of their travel history.  

In addition, all students and staff are reminded to: 


a. Observe high levels of personal hygiene

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when sneezing or coughing, and to throw away the tissue immediately into a bin.
