Following a meeting this afternoon with the Minister for Further & Higher Education, Innovation, Research, & Science, Simon Harris, and his senior officials, and on foot of advice received from the A/CMO, we urge all of our students and especially at this time, to strongly adhere to public health advice. This includes limiting elective congregation outside of campus environments and cutting the number of contacts. Our institutes of technology have put in place safety measures and working protocols fashioned with the advice of the public health authorities. They have moved to blended provision for your protection and to ensure that your education and training is not interrupted by the current pandemic. The commitment is to protect our learning communities and to that end we ask all to observe the advice issued nationally and to adhere to the appropriate safety measures that have been put in place by your institution.
