Contrary to news making rounds of a “looming outbreak” of COVID-19 at Wisconsin International University College, Management of the University wishes to bring to the attention of all that there has been no reported case of COVID-19 at any of the Wisconsin International University College campuses in either Accra or Kumasi since the outbreak of the disease early last year.
This has been as a result of the University’s strict adherence to all laid down safety precautions and protocols as outlined by the Ghana Health Service and World Health Organization. Management wishes to assure members of the public that adequate measures have been put in place to curtail any possible outbreak of the disease on our campuses:
HANDWASHING, SANITIZER USE
As part of the measures to ensure strict adherence to all safety protocols the university ensured that hand washing facilities including Veronica buckets have been placed at vantage points on our campuses.
Sanitizers, soap, tissue and other detergents have not been in short supply as authorities want to ensure that both staff and students regularly wash and sanitize their hands.
The university as part of the measures in ensuring the wearing of face mask has distributed face masks to all staff members and requested unit heads to ensure all staff members wear them at all times.
COVID 19 MONITORING TEAM & AMBASSADORS
As part of steps to prevent an outbreak of the COVID 19, Management of the university has also set up a COVID 19 Monitoring Team and Ambassadors made up of both staff and students at all units/levels to offer rapid response to COVID-19 issues while ensuring strict adherence to all safety protocols at all times at the various levels/units.
Meanwhile Management of the university is investigating the source of a false DAILY POST newspaper report of a “looming outbreak” which it describes as mischievous and misleading and will update the public in due course.
