All prior approvals that entail students’ mass movement on/off campus were also rescinded.

The Senate also directed that the fumigation of the entire University environment particularly, the classrooms be carried out as preventive measure during the period of the shut down; just as the University, particularly the College of Medicine, were encouraged to be part of a problem solving research team.
