ACTIONS TAKEN AGAINST COVID-19
As COVID-19 spreads—and is now officially a pandemic—we need to take additional safety
measures to protect our employees and students. The spread and impact are gradually becoming
worrisome, and we want to put in place measures to minimize the risk and protect our employees
Hence, our office will temporarily be closed to students for two weeks; until March 31, 2020
effective today, March 16, 2020. All classes for March and April shall be rescheduled—your
Program Director will give detailed action plans. However, all staff will be working from home,
so you are free to contact any member of staff via e-mail or phone to assist you with any issues
you may have especially; supervision and RF assistance. We will reassess and update all students
by March 31, 2020, on the status of things.
We encourage all students and stakeholders of NiBS to take extra precautions necessary to safeguard their health and that of others. It is a collective responsibility to help stop the spread of this virus. Please visit the hospital if you feel any symptoms and make sure to keep abreast with the news for any updates and measures that need to be taken.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused and ask that you stay safe. We are positive that very soon, everything will be back to normal and encourage all to see things in the same light and not panic.
