13 March 2020
As you may already know WHO has termed the spread of COVID – 19 as “Pandemic”.
Our students’ health and well-being are of premier and central importance to us. GSD is taking the situation with the COVID-19 virus very seriously and we are adopting a series of contingency measures.
While we have followed all the precautionary measures stated by the Federal Public Health Officials, we will go the extra mile and be extra cautious.
GSD, to begin with, will suspend classes, starting 13 March 2020 until 23 March 2020. All missed classes will be made up before the end of the semester.
This period is essential for us to review the situation, see how the pandemic will develop, and take appropriate measures accordingly.
During this period, the GSD offices will remain open and continue functioning with the GSD staff at their workplaces.
The classes will resume upon expiration of the suspension period, about which the students and faculty will be duly informed.
In the meantime, we urge everyone to stay at home and avoid unnecessary contact with the external environment.
As we will be following the situation very closely, we request our students and faculty to check their email regularly.
