Dear members of the Misr University for Science and Technology community,
We are committed to some precautionary measures against the COVID-19 virus, which will be in effect until at least mid-winter:
It is extremely important to follow all health and safety guidelines that include the following points:
- Procedural masks are still required in the university.
- Staff and students must always wear a procedural mask unless they are alone in an enclosed space.
- You should wear a mask even when sitting two meters apart or even more.
- Masks can be removed for a brief period while actively eating and drinking but must be worn again immediately afterwards. For example, if you were eating and stopped for a conversation, put on your mask till you finish your talk.
- If you cannot maintain a distance of at least 1 meter when outside, please wear a procedural mask.
- Wear a procedural mask that always properly covers your nose and mouth.
- Change your mask four hours after wearing it, or sooner in case it gets dirty or wet.
- Coughing or sneezing into your arm or elbow.
- Wash your hands with soap and water or use a sanitizer frequently.
In light of the emerging new strains, some of which may be of concern as per the World Health Organization:
- We urge you to get vaccinated if you have not already done so, and to get your third dose as soon as you can.
- The vaccines are available at Souad Kafafi University Hospital ‘AT NO COST’ for the MUST community.
- And from our side, we will always remain in close contact with the Egyptian Ministry of Health, so that we could update you with the latest updates and developments.
