Amidst the rumored spike in new confirmed COVID-19 cases in the university, the Administrative Council of Southern Luzon State University addressed preemptive and preventive measures to be put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19 amongst its employees during its Regular Administrative Council (Virtual) Meeting, 6 April 2021.
Backed by the projections of the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics department of SLSU, the three vice presidents, Dr. Frederick T. Villa, Dr. Marissa C. Esperal, and Dr. Gondelina A. Radovan, and the head of the Human Resource Management Office, Ms. Maridel C. Zabella presented their proposals to reduce the number of employees reporting to school by 50 percent working capacity from April 5 to 18, 2021.
The approved proposal is still subject to the existing policies provided by Civil Service Commission Circular No. 18 s. 2020 such as its limitations on alternative working arrangement for security guards and other frontline personnel.
Dr. Doracie B. Zoleta-Nantes, university president, also reminded the council that there is no guarantee that the new alternative working arrangement will curb the spread of the virus if minimum health standards are not practiced at home.
