Aligarh Muslim University Research scholars not to attend department during the lockdown

Aligarh: As a precautionary measure to thwart the possible spread of COVID-19 (Corona Virus), the Aligarh Muslim University administration has advised the supervisors and co-supervisors of the research scholars “not to call the students to departments or laboratories from their hostels or homes, whether in Aligarh or outside, until allowed by the university”.

According to a notice issued by the Registrar, Mr Abdul Hamid (IPS), the Provosts of all the halls have also been advised not to allow any new student in their respective halls “to protect the health of the existing residents”. The notice said that allowing new students in the halls can lead to a dangerous situation as the travel history of the new entrants or history of their possible contact with a person infected with COVID-19 may not be known to the hall administration.
