New Normal As Universities Open

After the announcement made by Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha that universities can now reopen, different universities have announced varied plans to students and staff. 

Mount Kenya University has been continuing with their online classes and has now opened the lecture halls for the the medical students and Nursing school who are already taking their practical lessons. The online exams for the other categories of students are still ongoing as from 5th of October.

On the other hand The University of Nairobi is also not in a hurry to ask all students to report back as their online classes are ongoing. A week ago, UON made their final year student graduation virtually. The teaching staff who are over 58 years old will continue to teach virtually to minimise physical contact with students. The hostels also will be reviewed so as to observe social distance.

Kenyatta University Vice-Chancellor Prof Paul Wainaina said that in-person learning will resume in phases. Final-year students in Medicine, Pharmacy and Nursing reported on September 14.

Thereafter, the university will roll out a phased reopening plan, which will see Fourth Year students report on October 16, for three weeks and then followed by Second Year and Third Year students. The Nation reports.
