Taha College is guided by public health and government directives as well as coordination within the Ministry of Universities and Colleges. To help ensure a safe environment where everyone can feel comfortable returning to campus, the following procedures are being implemented:

  • Physical distancing: adhering to the requirement to stay 2-metres apart, procedures will be developed for classrooms (which have been re-arranged), shared offices, and teaching labs and other spaces.
  • Mandatory masks: masks and/or face covering are required in all indoor spaces and outdoor spaces where 2-metre distancing cannot be maintained.
  • Self-monitoring: all individuals are encouraged to self-monitor. If anyone is feeling unwell or symptomatic, they are required to self-isolate and must not attend our campuses.
  • Signage: is posted to ensure that everyone has been screened for COVID-19 symptoms and will have responded ‘no’ to all questions in the screening questionnaire. When this is the case, they will be able to enter the campus, while continuing to practice physical distancing and proper hand hygiene.
  • Protective measures: plexiglass barriers and sneeze guards will be installed in high-traffic areas where maintaining physical distancing is not possible. Increased and focused cleaning around high touch points is being done on Taha’s campus, using new cleaning technologies like atomised disinfectants.
