UMS allows students to return home

24th November, 2020

KOTA KINABALU: Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) has decided to allow students including from peninsular Malaysia and Sarawak to return to their hometowns beginning Nov 20 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sabah Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said this decision was made in response to many requests by parents to let their children return home.

“However, students who returned home would not be allowed to re-enter campus. Students can apply for permission to return home from their respective faculties,” said Masidi, the state government’s official spokesman on COVID-19.

“At the same time, they are required to submit an acknowledgement letter from the parents and student to leave campus to the office of their respective residential colleges,” he told a daily news conference on COVID-19 in Sabah here on Monday.

Masidi said UMS would give the necessary assistance to students who could not return home to ensure their health and well-being are taken care of.

“This includes providing dry food, toiletries, face masks and hand sanitisers, conducting targeted COVID-19 screenings, online counselling service for all students and manning the student affairs operations room round the clock,” he added. –Bernama
