New Delhi: The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) made it compulsory on Sunday for anyone coming from Maharashtra to carry a negative RT-PCR test report while entering the campus. The varsity also said via a circular that the RT-PCR report “should not be older than 72 hours prior to undertaking the journey”.
Those sans the negative COVID-19 test report will have to stay in quarantine for 14 days, the circular said. The prestigious varsity also directed strict enforcement of COVID-19 protocol in public places, libraries, laboratories, markets and hostels.
The university asked the department heads to make a planning for staggered working hours.
“The staggered working hours should be implemented in laboratories as was the case at the beginning of the phased opening of the campus. Department heads may also plan for staggering work-hours and reduced number of the staff whenever there is a concern of social distancing in the offices,” the circular was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
The circular also advised the students against coming out of their hostels unless it is absolutely necessary.
