The Commission on Higher Education had set the opening of classes of colleges and universities on June 8 but because of the threats of H1N1 virus, colleges and universities here in Batangas will have the opening of classes next week, June 15.
This move is to prepare colleges and universities to the possible harm of the aforesaid influenza virus. De la Salle Lipa, Lyceum of the Philippines Batangas University, University of Batangas and particularly Batangas State University (with foreign students) are among the colleges and universities with a large number of student population and being unprepared for the posible cases would certainly cause a fast and alarming spread of H1N1 not only in the province but in the country at large.
With this concern, it is advised that colleges here in the province must have their own thermo scanner located at the students and employees entrance. Assembly like Freshmen orientation must also be postponed and announcements regarding the prevention of the H1N1 virus must also be in posted on bulletins and offices.
For the students, teachers and school staff, always bring sanitizers and alcohol, observe proper hygiene, have a healthy diet always and take vitamins C, zinc and E.
Have a safe first day everybody!
