Management of Institute of Distance and e-Learning (IDeL) of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW), has begun visiting all study centres.

This is to observe at first hand, the level of compliance to all safety protocols outlined by UEW management and the Ghana Health Service.

This came to light when the Director of  IDeL, Prof. Francis Owusu Mensah, went on working visit to some study centres across the country.

He expressed delight and satisfaction with the adherence to the protocols.

“I am satisfied with the measures put in place in all the facilities I have visited. Fighting the virus is a shared responsibility and I am glad everyone is playing his or her part,” he said.

Prof Owusu Mensah said UEW had lunched Covid-19 task force that will be going around campuses and study centres to ensure that safety protocols were being adhered to.

According to him, this will complement the already existing task force at the host institutions of IDeL.

“As a director of IDeL, I have to be going round study centres to ascertain how the safety protocols are being observed and I will be round every study centre”.

The Director urged the administrators and study centre coordinators to enforce the rules to the latter.

According to him, the task force is made up of Deans, Directors, Heads of Department and the leadership of students.

His first visit took him to Winneba study centre, the Cape Coast,  the Sekondi Takoradi study centres,  Kosoa and some study centres in Greater Accra.

In all his visit, he used the opportunity to interact with study centres coordinators, administrators, tutors and students urging them to ensure strict adherence to Covid-19 safety protocols.

So far Ghana’s Covid 19 cases continue to surge with some schools reporting Covid-19 cases, with the latest figures coming from a private school in Akosombo in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern Region.
