Following the announcement by the Presidential Task-Force on COVID-19 that there would likely be a surge in the pandemic, the University has embarked on another round of decontamination of the entire campus to ensure the safety of staff and those who may have dealings with FUNAAB. According to the Registrar, Dr. ‘Bola Adekola, decontamination commenced on Thursday, July 8 and would end on Monday, July 13, 2020. During the exercise, all offices are to be closed, except for those on essential duties while work begins on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 in line with the rotational arrangements that had been put in place in the approved rosters for each office.
The Registrar advised members of staff to adhere strictly to the safety protocols as announced by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and other agencies managing the pandemic in the country. He equally enjoined staff to stop receiving unofficial visitors during office hours while those who are not to be at work, based on the rosters drawn by the Heads of units, should stay off the campus during the days they are off duty. As a measure of reducing physical contacts on campus, Dr. Adekola reiterated that most of the administrative activities in the University had been migrated online.
