After their holiday period, students at URACCAN venue Las Minas returned normally to their classrooms this Monday, April 20. Attendance averaged between 80% and 85%.
La PhD. Leonor Ruiz Calderón, vice-chancellor of the Las Minas campus, said that the institutional protocol is being followed, starting with the installation of more sinks, so that the student has access to soap and water in any area of the enclosure. The same procedure was implemented in the Rosita, Bonanza and Waslala extensions.
"Another measure we have taken is to provide the necessary information to the university community, as good relations allow us to work coordinated with the Ministry of Health and they have given talks on this pandemic, the hygiene measures to be taken and, above all, not to fall into misinformation, because this allows us to create panic in people" , the civil service official said.
For her part, the Msc. Lilia Montoya Leal, coordinator of the Humanities area in the enclosure, said that the distance of one meter per person is also being applied, for which spaces such as the auditorium, library or laboratories have been earmarked, so that young people receive their face-to-face classes with enough space.
"We are taking preventive measures in all aspects, for this week we have coordinated the Fumigation Day in the premises, because we are also affected by Malaria and Dengue. As a community university we must comprehensively protect our students," said the Montoya master's degree.Similarly, intercultural nursing student Janeth Zamora Laguna said the university has been very responsible, as since the Ministry of Health reported on the first case of COVID-19 in the country, it took immediate prevention measures and "has put sinks in many parts of the premises, in places where there was no; in this way we keep the constant washing of the hands as a way to prevent any disease, so we can take care of each other."
