The Polytechnic Ibadan on Tuesday said that it has constituted a 15-man task force committee to enforce compliance with COVID-19 safety protocols in the institution.
Rector of the institution, Kazeem Adebiyi, made the disclosure when the management of the institution met some representatives of neighbouring communities around the institution.
Premium Times reports that the landlords from some areas around the institution such as Sango, Alemuloke, Iso pako, Ijokodo, Agbaje, Apete, Awotan, Patako, Ariyibi, Arola, Olomo, among others, attended the meeting.
Mr Adebiyi, while addressing the landlords, noted that the 15-man Task Force Committee on Covid-19 was constituted by the management as part of preparations for the re-opening of the institution.
He said that the 15- member committee is headed by the institution’s Director of Medical Services.
He noted that the committee is saddled with the responsibility of preventing and curtailing the spread of the virus.
The committee, according to the rector, has an 8- point term of reference.
He added that the committee will provide a minimum health and safety threshold required for resumption of academic activities.
Speaking further, Mr Adebiyi maintained that the committee will identify and monitor specific areas of the institution that may be prone to the pandemic and come up with recommendations on how to handle such a situation.
