COVID-19 Safety Protocol

Due to COVID-19 pandemic situation, students were not able to pursue their studies in universities in Sri Lanka. Online teaching was conducted through various platforms such as Learning Management System (LMS), google classroom and zoom. After students are permitted to enter into university premises, Faculty of Allied Health Sciences has developed a safety protocol for the students and staff to take preventive measures and monitor the infection control activities against COVID- 19. We have formed Health promotion Committee and have developed guidelines that are to be followed by students and staff within the university premises and hostel.
