JU greets students with flowers and masks on their return to campus

Jahangirnagar University on Monday greeted its students with flowers, masks, hand sanitizers, chocolates and cakes as they started returning to their dormitories after 17 months of Covid-induced closure.

Besides extending a warm welcome the university authorities took steps to measure students’ body temperature and ensure proper sanitization during their entry through the gates.

The authorities also have set up a Covid-19 vaccine booth at Wazed Miah Science Research Centre of the university for students.

Provost of Sheikh Hasina Hall Professor Bashir Ahmed said, “We will welcome the students with gifts whenever they come.”

Isolation centres have been set up at halls to keep the sick students away from others, he said.

Those who didn’t receive the vaccines yet can register on spot and enter halls after receiving shots from university’s vaccine centre, Prof Ahmed added.

Provost of Shahid Salam-Barkat Hall Professor Dr Ali Azam Talukder said,” We have also managed oxygen for students for use in emergency cases.”
