“I ask you all to take responsibility for the protection of others”
VC Renée Leon (via Twitter) says the only way to “stem” rising COVID-19 cases and deaths is “for all of us to do everything we can to minimise transmissions.”
And what she is doing is “urging students and staff to continue to implement all possible protective measures” including masking-up indoors, “with anyone outside your own household.”
To assist there will be masks available from campus libraries, “in the coming days.”
“I ask you all to take responsibility for the protection of others, our campuses and our communities,’ she says.
Uni SA, is also concerned by the rate of infection. In contrast, it has made masks on campus mandatory and returned to on-line teaching and working from home (CMM August 3).
