Covid -19 instructions

This guidance supplements and does not replace any Governmental health and safety laws, rules, and regulations with which Mutah University (MU) must comply.

on Saturday, Jordan’s Ministry of Higher Education   issued a roadmap for the return to on-campus education at higher education institutions for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The plan includes all public and private higher education institutions for all levels and specialisations, which means that resuming in-class education at Jordanian universities is now possible this academic year. It is stressed, however, that students’ presence on campus demands important procedures in light of the current epidemiological conditions, according to the approved road map, considering that reducing the risk of contracting the coronavirus is important for students, faculty members, university visitors, and administrative and technical personnel.

The plan is divided into three phases. The first of which comprises preventative procedures before the return of students to campus while encouraging all to receive vaccines, raising students’ awareness of procedures while on campus, wearing masks, conducting PCR tests and observing social distancing. This also comprises preparing regular fortnightly statistics that detail the number of people who have received vaccines (first dose-second dose), registering people on the national vaccination platform, and preparing a study plan that can be used for each specialisation, for fully in-class education, blended education and distant education

The second phase includes procedures concerning the university campus and its facilities, such as gates, teaching halls, libraries, laboratories, restaurants, student dorms and transportation within campus. This also includes:

Distribution of students' entry into the campus via more than one gate to prevent gatherings;

Demanding Green Sanad to enter the faculty members, administrative and technical personnel and students to the campus;

If Green Sanad is not available, a person should provide weekly negative PCR test result that is valid for (72) hours on Sundays and Thursdays;

Implementing Defense Order No. 32 in relevance to higher education institutions;

Starting committee to carry out in field inspection to verify the proper implementation of all related arrangements;

Approval and adoption of Sanad app to verify the commitment to regulations in accordance with the defense orders in collaboration with the Deanship of Student Affairs, university security staff, and student personnel;

Organizing inspection teams visits by Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research throughout the semester within the campus and faculties, to ensure commitment to defense orders and subsequent actions;

Holding all exams during the semester on campus for all specialisations and degrees with full commitment to relevant defense orders, while taking all necessary arrangements and procedures to ensure the safety of students in dorms, laboratories and library.

The third phase comprises mechanisms to deal with infected people and their contacts inside campus

According to the road map, if the infection rate among students of the same class equals or exceeds 10%, class is suspended for 14 days and the class shifts to online education during that period

Further, if the infection rate is 10% and higher inside a faculty, education is suspended inside the faculty for 14 days and it shifts to online education.

If the infection rate at the university is 10 per cent and higher, education at the university is suspended in cooperation with stakeholders and shifts to online education.

Students who suffer cancer or students who have diseases that lead to low immunity are allowed to continue learning remotely while their exams are to be held on campus.

Approved health protocol is applied to test_positive person and those who have been within close proximity for  duration of 15 minutes; 2 meters; not wearing mask on the basis of home isol

• This guidance provides resources that MU administrators can use to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2 among students, faculty, and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
• MU administrators can help protect students, faculty, and staff and slow the spread of COVID-19, by encouraging vaccinations and using MoH’s Guidance for MU.
• MU can help increase vaccine uptake among students, faculty, and staff by providing information about COVID-19 vaccination, promoting vaccine trust and confidence, and establishing supportive policies and practices that make getting vaccinated as easy and convenient as possible.
• Until everyone is fully vaccinated in MU, MoH recommends universal masking indoors in public for all persons who are unvaccinated regardless of level of community transmission, and universal masking indoors in public for all persons (fully vaccinated and not fully vaccinated) in areas of substantial or high transmission.
• People who are fully vaccinated and who came into close contact with someone with COVID-19 should get tested 5-7 days after the date of last exposure, or immediately if symptoms develop, and wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days after exposure or until a negative test result. In general, quarantine is not needed as long vaccinated, exposed persons remain asymptomatic unless required by local rules or regulations.
• People who are not fully vaccinated who came into close contact should quarantine and get tested immediately after being identified as a close contact. If the test is negative, they should get tested again 5–7 days after last exposure, or immediately if symptoms develop, and continue to quarantine.
• MU should implement an entry screening testing strategy for people who are not fully vaccinated prior to the beginning of each term.
• MU should implement a universal serial screening testing strategy for people who are not fully vaccinated in the context of moderate, substantial, or high community transmission of SARS-CoV-2 if sufficient testing capacity is available.
