The government has announced that students enrolled in higher education institutes, are permitted to attend classes on-site as of 30 August 2021. The 1.5 meter rule will no longer apply here.

  • Preventative self-testing is still strongly advised 
  • Ensure the following hygiene measure at all times:
    • -Do not shake hands;
