Re-Opening of Damelin Campuses Under Lockdown Level 1

The purpose of this letter is to provide you with information on the next phase of re-opening of Damelin campuses permitted by government under Lockdown Level 1. The safety of students and staff remains a priority for all education institutions as the sector continues to implement a Covid-19 risk-adjusted strategy. No doubt there are many questions that you may have in this regard and we will endeavour to address them in this message and in further communication in the coming weeks.

At Damelin, we are permitted to return 100% of the total student population under Lockdown Level 1. However, given health safety concerns campus occupancy will be strictly maintained at 66% of persons on campus at any given time.

Educor Official Communication – Level 1 of Lockdown

We are reminded that the Coronavirus remains a serious threat to health and life despite South Africa having recently moved to Level 1 in its COVID-19 strategy. Health and safety protocols must continue to be strictly adhered to if a resurgence of the disease is to be averted.

Level 1 has more students eligible to return to campus, and for most sectors of the country’s economy to be revived. The decreasing number of daily new infections informed this decision. On 27 September, this number of infections stood at 1 268 in South Africa.

Since the commencement of the nationwide lockdown in March, all on-campus activities were suspended due to the health and safety risks associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The impact of the pandemic required alternative plans for students to continue with their studies and Damelin responded by directing students to the online learning platform myClass, which is accessible through the student portal, as part of Damelin’s remote teaching and learning, called Go!Digital, response as previously communicated to students.

For almost 100 days we have been living in a time of national lockdown because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Damelin management understands that the lockdown has brought some uncertainty among parents, guardians and sponsors, and for students’ themselves, who are concerned about finishing their academic year according to their original plans. We wish to assure you that we have reworked the academic calendars and assessment timetables to ensure that our students are provided with a fair opportunity to complete and succeed in the 2020 academic year.
