THE PAMANTASAN ng Lungsod ng Maynila will continue to hold limited face-to-face classes but will cut the number of participants amid the rise in Covid19 cases in the National Capital Region.

Colleges conducting physical classes will reduce capacity to 30 percent based on the guidelines issued by the Inter-Agency Task Force.

Metro Manila will be under Alert Level 3 until January 15.

PLM students were advised to coordinate directly with their concerned colleges for their schedule. Meanwhile, all online classes will continue.

PLM President Emmanuel Leyco said that with the threat of rising Covid19 infections, the school community is encouraged to adhere to minimum health standards such as the proper wearing of face masks, physical distancing, isolation and quarantine if experiencing flu-like symptoms.

“We hope this tightening of quarantine rules will be short-lived so that we can again work towards offering more face-to-face classes,” Leyco added.

The university will also reduce the number of employees allowed to work onsite to 30 percent capacity until January 15.
