UWI closed until April 5
The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus will be closed from March 24 to April 5, until further notice, to limit spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
This follows Government’s disclosure that Barbados has moved to Stage 2 of its National Implementation Plan in combating COVID-19.
A press release from UWI said: “Closure of the campus is due to the fluid, dynamic situation presented by the challenges of the novel coronavirus.
“COVID-19 continues to present an unprecedented set of circumstances that the campus must deal with to ensure the health and wellbeing of our students and staff and the most optimal functioning of the campus under these circumstances.
“Libraries, labs, study spaces and other areas which we previously announced would remain open are now closed. We will, however, maintain essential on-campus services especially for our residential students.
“The Administration regrets any inconvenience that this closure may cause and urges everyone to stay safe as we continue to navigate these unchartered waters.”
