Dear Students, Parents, and Staff,
HELP University and HELP Academy continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely.
As of today, there are no COVID-19 cases in HELP University and HELP Academy.
The two students who were quarantined last week, have undergone medical tests, and are confirmed to be negative. They are still under quarantine as required by the Ministry of Health, Malaysia.
We also require all students and visitors to our campuses to fill in the travel advisory form. All students are required to fill in this form at the start of each semester, and after a long weekend, as they may have travelled. We urge you to fill in this form honestly and truthfully. Here is the link to the form: https://bit.ly/33cvMjo
As we have mentioned in our first advisory email that all students and staff who have travelled overseas are required to undertake a 14-day quarantine period at home starting from the time they arrive back in Malaysia. After the 14 -day quarantine period, they must visit a doctor at a clinic, to get the medical clearance to return to school or work.
Academic faculties will give their full support to students in quarantine especially through online learning, emails, and regular communication.
Please continue to be vigilant, and to practice good personal hygiene.
If you see anyone displaying the symptoms of COVID-19 please inform them to see the doctor immediately.
We would like to continue to assure you that the university’s highest priority remains the health and safety of our students and staff. As soon as we know of any information that affects any one of our students or staff, we will share it with the wider HELP community to the best of our ability through the official communications channel – email from the university.
We urge students, parents, and staff not to spread unnecessary alarm, and information that may not be genuine regarding COVID-19, or to post fake news on social media as you may land yourself into trouble with the law. Furthermore, it spreads unnecessary panic amongst many people, and it’s irresponsible.
