We at Windsor University School of Medicine (WUSOM) have a responsibility to our students, faculty, and staff to do all that we can to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Thereby, in keeping with our steadfast commitment to the health and well-being of the WUSOM community and in consideration of the current status of COVID-19 spread and WHO declaration of pandemic status (even though currently there are no confirmed cases on the island of St.Kitts) the Board, President, and Deans Office after reviewing the recommendations of the Emergency preparedness committee have authorized that the the following steps should be taken:
1)Students willing to travel to their home country are encouraged to do so. The instructions will be conducted through an online platform, commencing next week Tuesday, March 17, 2020. The attendance of the online lectures is mandatory and will be considered part of the required attendance policy to successfully complete the semester. The school will communicate directly to students, the specific requirements and assessments that may require alternative arrangements along with other necessary information, such as the expected date of return.
2)Students wishing to stay back on the island may utilize campus facilities, and are required to follow the recommended precautionary measures to prevent illness.
The COVID-19 situation is rapidly evolving; we will continue monitoring the situation closely. Therefore, updates will be sent to your institutional email. We encourage you to still follow the advisory sent earlier, as it provides valuable information and resources. Kindly find the advisory attached to this email.
