“Likewise, all planned in-person assessments are to be transferred to online platforms or deferred until it is deemed safe to return to mask-to-mask sessions,” NMU said.
“Lecturers will communicate changes to assessment, learning and teaching schedules in their modules.”
According to the letter, many of the university’s students infected with Covid-19 had been asymptomatic and showed no signs of the virus.
“This is why it becomes critical to always wear a face mask in all our buildings and when you are walking to or around campus,” NMU said.
“This, accompanied by the other preventive measures of sanitising hands and maintaining a safe distance, will assist in the ongoing efforts to contain the virus and curb its impact on the academic project.”
