The school administration of the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos has limited face-to-face transactions within its campus to individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The university has designated checkers at its main entrance requiring individuals to present a copy of his vaccination card before he can be allowed inside the premises.
A visible sign is also posted at its main gate leading to the parking area that reminds car owners that only fully vaccinated individuals are allowed entry. It also requires individuals to scan their BaC-Trac ID.
The university adopted these measures as limited face-to-face classes resumed last January 10 for their fourth-year nursing and medical technology students.
In an article published by Tolentine Star, the university official school paper, it said that upon arrival of the students temperature checks were done and students presented their BacTrac IDs and vaccination cards.
Quoting College of Allied Medical Health Sciences Dean Dr. Sheila Arnibal, RN, MN, the article added: “We have to adhere to the protocols of the school and we have to observe the one-way traffic rule. As much as possible, [students must] be early in the school so that they will be separated from others who have other transactions.”
The university’s certificate of authority, from the Commission on Higher Education, to conduct limited face-to-face classes for its Nursing and Medical Technology programs is valid from Dec. 27, 2021 to Dec. 26, 2022.
