THE CAGAYAN State University locked down its Central Administration offices and Andrews campus for five days as a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus disease.

The Office of the University President said the lockdown started on March 15 and will last until March 19, 2021 to allow contact tracing of those exposed to Covid19 patients.

“For offices that have urgent tasks that may only be done in the office, the head of office must seek the approval of the President for entry in their respective buildings,” CSU President Urdujah Tejada said on Facebook.

Tejada directed all employees who had close contact with any of the personnel of the Vice President for Administration and Finance office in the past two weeks to have themselves swabbed together with members of their families.

“They are also advised to see the university physician for the proper endorsement,” Tejada said.

“Meantime, everyone is advised to practice health protocols like wearing of face mask and face shield, serious handwashing and social distancing. Stay home and keep yourself and your family protected at all times,” she added.

Tejadah said that she and her staff will meantime hold office at CSU’s Carig campus.
