CHECKING ON STUDENTS RETURNING, EVEN WITH FAMILIES, STUDENTS NEED TO OBEY MCO

KOTA BHARU 4 May | Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK) students are advised to adhere to precautionary measures during the Movement Control Order (MCO) despite being in their hometown.

UMK Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dato’ Ts. Dr. Noor Azizi said students should also practice safe social distancing, which is at least one meter away and maintain good hygiene by regularly washing their hands with disinfectants.

He also said students should always wear a mouth and nose cover for any outdoor activity.

"Students are also encouraged to continue their online learning and stay at home throughout the MCO implementation period," he said after reviewing the Third Phase Ops Hantar Pelajar students process to the North Zone destination, at the Dewan Keusahawanan, UMK City Campus, Pengkalan Chepa, on May 3.
Also present were the Vice-Chancellor (Student Affairs and Alumni), Prof. Ts. Dr. Zaliman Sauli and Director of the University Health Centre (PKU), Dr. Aswan Ismail.

Meanwhile, Prof. Dato’ Ts. Dr. Noor Azizi said Ops Hantar Pelajar which had entered Phase Three involved 180 students for the Northern Zone involving Kedah, Perlis and Penang.

“The number includes students from the Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM), Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UNISZA), Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) and private colleges.

"Tonight's bus movement uses a smart sharing (reciprocal) method whereby our students board the bus service provided by another higher education institution (IPT) from the Northern Zone, Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), which has just arrived in Kelantan," he said.
Therefore, he said coordination between these universities is important as this reciprocal method is beneficial to both parties.

“The same method is used for traveling to the Central and Eastern Zones where students from Selangor and Kuala Lumpur will board the UMK bus to return to Kelantan.

"So, this is the result of close cooperation between public universities and the support of all parties to keep our children safe," he said.

In the meantime, Prof. Dato’ Ts. Dr. Noor Azizi, expressed his appreciation to the Office of Student Affairs and Alumni (HEPA) in collaboration with the PKU and the UMK Student Representative Council which has made the process of sending the students smooth.
“Overall, I am pleased with the preparations tonight that comply with the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). These include the cooperation of the PDRM, the Kota Bharu Fire and Rescue Office who conducted student bus and luggage sanitation processes.

"The university also provides food for students during iftar/dinner before the scheduled bus movement departs at 9pm," he said.

The management and citizens of UMK pray that all students arrive safely at their destination and that they’re able to sit with their families to enjoy pre-dawn (suhoor) meal together.
