THE CENTRO Escolar University has received its Safety Seal Certification from the Department of the Interior and Local Government, which attests to the university’s compliance with the government’s health standards.

The Safety Seal Certification signifies that CEU is deemed safe for face-to-face classes.

“With the given certification, the CEU community is assured that health and safety protocols are implemented inside the campus to ensure everyone’s well-being and prevent contracting any virus, especially COVID-19,” the university said.

“Following all the imposed health regulations will maintain the smooth flow of classes and office operations in the University and contribute to preventing the spread of virus within the community,” it added.

The university is conducting in-person classes for its BS Nursing and BS Medical Technology programs and School of Dentistry.

Commission on Higher Education Chairman Prospero De Vera III earlier said that 313 higher education institutions have resumed in-person classes covering at least 1,000 degree programs.

De Vera expressed optimism that more schools will hold physical classes this year with the easing of pandemic restrictions.
