Coping with the Pandemic at James Cook University Singapore

The new trimester at James Cook University Singapore commenced on 16th March and I’d thought that I should share how we’re coping at the university.

As we all know, the DORSCON alert status in Singapore was raised to Orange on 7th Feb and more recently on 11th March, the WHO announce that the COVID-19 virus is a pandemic. So there’s quite a bit of concern over the virus wreaking havoc for business continuity.

On 16th March 3 confirmed cases were linked to institutes of higher learning in Singapore. They included a part-time social work student at at the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), an exchange student from Spain at Singapore Management University (SMU) and the Dean of the graduate business school in INSEAD.

James Cook University has been quite fortunate thus far in that we’ve not have any confirmed cases among students and staff. But, we can’t be complacent. In this stream, I share the precautions taken by JCU to mitigate the risks and reduce disruption due to COVID-19.
