COVID-19 Information

Campus Communication: 

Following previous Newsflash messages to students and staff relating to the Coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent announcement by the South African government on 15 March 2020, as well as the statement released by the Minister of Higher Education this morning, CPUT management has decided to implement the following measures to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus within the CPUT community:

As a precautionary measure, in the interest of students and staff health and safety, management strongly urges all students to vacate all CPUT premises within 72 hours from the date of release of this newsflash. Since the institution has already ceased all on-campus operational activities and has extended the recess period, support, administrative and professional staff must continue to work off-campus and to remain on call should the situation change.

These measures will enable us to sanitise and deep clean all CPUT Residences and campus facilities as part of efforts to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus within the CPUT community.

The following further measures are to be implemented:

• All planned travelling for CPUT staff and visiting guests (in and out of SA) has been cancelled and only domestic travel will be allowed if absolutely necessary.
• Cancel all internal and external events (academic and non-academic), mass gatherings, sports events and practices.

• The academic programme will be re-aligned and the Deans of Faculties will be in contact with students and staff.
• The April 2020 Graduation ceremonies are cancelled.

We are constantly monitoring and assessing the situation and will make appropriate decisions in the best interest of the CPUT community.
