The attention of the Management of the Ghana Institute of Journalism has been drawn to the above publication captured on page 9 of the Wednesday 13th January, 2021 edition of the Republic Press Newspaper.
Contrary to the paper’s report that authorities of the school are not doing much to ensure adherence to the COVID-19 protocols, the reality tells a different story.
It is necessary for the general public to note that the following measures have been put in place by the Institute to check the spread of COVID-19:
1. All first-year undergraduate students attend lectures from the Dzorwulu Campus of the Institute.
This means that the Ringway Campus at Osu will experience a considerable decrease in student numbers as only continuing students will use facilities there for the 2020/2021 academic year.
2. Veronica buckets, soap, and hand sanitizers have been placed at vantage points for usage by students, staff, and visitors.
3. Security staff of the Institute is allocated at the entrances of both the Ringway and Dzorwulu campuses to check temperatures of all persons entering our campuses.
4. The Institute operates a strict NO MASK NO ENTRY regime at both campuses.
5. A hybrid learning system that employs face-to-face as well as online learning modules are currently in use to enhance physical distancing.
6. Large classes have been divided into smaller groups to allow for physical distancing.
7. Both campuses of the Institute were fumigated on 6th January 2021 in fulfillment of government
Management wishes to assure the general public that the strict enforcement of the above protocols as well as an enhanced hygiene regime activated at both campuses of the Institute will ensure a safe 2020/2021 academic year for students, staff, and the general public.
