Updated Campus Reopening Arrangements for Semester II, 2020-2021
15/01/2021

The Government of Barbados has extended the national curfew (9:00 pm - 5:00 am) to January 31. As with previous curfews, this extension aims to restrict activity, movement and gatherings that could result in the further spread of COVID-19, and it therefore has implications for the operations of the Campus.

The following measures will be implemented for the first six weeks of Semester II, 2020-2021 after which they will be reviewed.

• All lectures and tutorials, which were originally scheduled for face-to-face, will now be delivered in an online format unless otherwise specified.

• Due to pedagogical requirements, practical sessions will continue to be delivered in a face-to-face format while observing all National and Campus COVID-19 protocols.

• All sessions which require face-to-face delivery, and which were scheduled between 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm, will be rescheduled to earlier time slots. Please note that it may now be necessary to reschedule some sessions to the reserved slot (Fridays 2 pm - 4 pm) and to Saturdays to facilitate their delivery. This is to ensure classes finish in time for students and staff to be at home before the start of the curfew, and very critically, to ensure the integrity of your degree programmes.

Staff are actively engaged in making the necessary adjustments to the timetable schedule and therefore it is expected that these changes will be published over the next few days.

Please also note that in accordance with the new curfew directive, some administrative staff will be working remotely and therefore email communication should be used wherever possible.

You are advised to visit the Cave Hill Campus website (www.cavehill.uwi.edu) for all updated information relating to the start of Semester 2, as well as to be informed/reminded about the Campus’s COVID-19 protocols.

For more details regarding the above measures, please visit your Cave Hill email to view an important statement from the Campus Registrar.
