GOMBAK, 13 October 2020: To ensure the safety of the staff and students in the university, the management of IIUM has released official guidelines for students and staff as the university takes the government’s imposition of conditional movement control order (CMCO) very seriously.

The Malaysian government has announced the implementation of CMCO in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya from 14 until 27 October 2020.

Concerning students who are currently in campus, they may choose to return home before the CMCO begins at midnight on 14 October 2020. They should do it in time because they will not be allowed to return home until the CMCO period is over, except for emergency cases.

All the services in the university are still operating within certain limits and conditions except for E-hailing and public buses which will not be allowed to enter the campus during CMCO.

The students from high-risk areas are advised to follow the update from Ministry of Health’s Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC). The information regarding these areas can be accessed on their Telegram or website https://t.me/cprckkm.

Students and staff have also been advised to practise physical distancing and observe good hygiene at all times. It is necessary to minimise the risk of COVID-19 infection among staff and students as well as to ensure the safe operation of the University.

The guidelines are applicable until further notice. ***
