In a special release signed by the Provost, Professor Olayinka Omigbodun today, the College of Medicine has ordered an immediate stop to all physical academic activities. This comes after the recent surge of COVID-19 cases among the residents of Alexander Brown Hall, UCH which prompted two emergency meetings including one convened by the Vice Chancellor.

The management of the Hall has been directed to immediately commence risk assessments and screening of all resident students. Isolation arrangements for those already infected with the virus are being put in place.

The special release also states that “students are encouraged to proceed home for the festive season to decongest the Hall”. “All academic sessions should immediately proceed to virtual mode until further notice. The situation will be reviewed regularly”.
