SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – Syracuse University has updated its public health protocols now that the spring semester is over. These protocols have been updated “as the University continues to align its policies and recommendations with best practices,” says Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives and Innovation J. Michael Haynie.

The protocols relate specifically to the summer semester and include several changes, about which you will find more information below.

Syracuse University, as of the publication of this article, is at the blue code level.

Testing Services and Requirements

Syracuse University will suspend on-campus testing on Monday, May 23. On-campus students can make an appointment at the Barnes Center, but faculty and staff are encouraged to use a community provider. The school will also suspend random surveillance testing programs for those vaccinated.

Wastewater analyzes will continue throughout the summer.

The COVID-level masking framework that is currently in place will remain throughout the summer. Currently, the framework follows the blue code level, which means that vaccinated people are recommended to wear masks indoors and outdoors and are required to wear them in class and that people unvaccinated should wear masks indoors and outdoors in groups.

On-Campus Isolation/Quarantine Housing

The school is also preparing to provide isolation and quarantine housing for only students living in SU housing. Students who live off-campus will be responsible for securing their own isolation and quarantine accommodation at their own expense, the school says.

Vaccine requirements

The COVID-19 and flu vaccine requirements that were in place for the 21-22 academic year will return for the summer semester.

Updated travel policy

Travel for school purposes will resume freely on May 23, but must register travel at travelregistry.syr.edu.

Personnel changes for COVID support functions

The school’s COVID Project Management Office will close on May 23. Contact tracing will transition to self-disclosure, the same reporting method used statewide.

“Let’s exercise our right to vote and respect the minimum sanitary protocols.”

That was the reminder of Dr. Chris Sorongon, deputy for medical data and analysis of the Emergency Operations Center Task Force (EOC-TF), as thousands of voters are expected to flock to various polling stations of the city of Bacolod today, May 9th.

Sorongon said voters should wear face masks, bring hand sanitizer and observe appropriate physical distancing.

“When we arrive at the voting centers, the Electoral Commission (Comelec) will also assign personnel to check the body temperature and once you have a high temperature or coronavirus (Covid-19) type symptoms, you will be brought to the isolation room, but you can still vote,” he said.

However, those who are confirmed Covid-19 patients in quarantine centers cannot vote, he added.

Sorongon noted that under Republic Act 11332 or the Mandatory Reporting of Notifiable Diseases and Health Events of Public Health Concern Act, persons subject to quarantine and isolation are required to comply with such an order.

“These (elections) are history because we are holding this event even though we are still in the pandemic so we still need to follow health protocols to prevent the spread of the virus…stay safe,” he said. he also stated.

As of May 8, Bacolod City had a total of 12 active cases of Covid-19.*

BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO

The Emergency Operations Center Task Force Deputy for Medicine, Analytics and Data Management reminded Bacolod City voters to observe minimum health protocols when visiting the different polling centers to vote today.

Dr Chris Sorongon said: “We must exercise our right to vote as responsible citizens. He also reminded Bacoleños to bring face masks, hand sanitizers and observe physical distancing when going out to vote.

When they arrive at the schools where they will vote, they will have to undergo a temperature check. If they have COVID or flu-like symptoms and their body temperature is elevated, they can still vote but will be taken to an isolation ward, he said.

Sorongon said voters with a normal body temperature or showing no flu-like symptoms will go straight to a non-isolated neighborhood. Although it is not a requirement, he reminds fully vaccinated voters to bring their vaccination record in case it is needed.

“This is a historic election as it is being held in the midst of the pandemic. That’s why we have to be careful in observing social distancing,” he said.

Sorongon also reminded voters to write down the list of candidates they wish to vote for in order to save time so that others can also vote. Because if people wait in line for a long time, it may pose a risk for them to be infected with the virus. “Let’s be concerned, let’s be sensitive, let’s be responsible.”

Whenever possible, voters should not wear t-shirts or any color that will represent a particular political party, as this is included in the restrictions imposed at polling centers, he added.*

CEBU CITY, Philippines – Do not forget to bring your own pens when you cast your votes on Monday.

And make sure to also bring water with you to avoid heatstroke.

These are just some of the reminders from the Department of Health in Central Visayas (DOH-7) to voters who are expected to troop to polling centers this Monday, May 9, for the 2022 national and local elections.

Dr. Mary Jean Loreche, chief pathologist of DOH-7, urge voters to comply with existing health protocols to ensure the safe conduct of the elections.

Aside from the proper wearing of face masks, Loreche said, voters should not prolong their stay in polling precincts.

“Limit as much as possible your stay in the polling precinct thus it is sound advice to have your list of candidates ready,” said Loreche.

The DOH-7 official also told voters to bring their own hand sanitizers and ballpens when they vote. It is also important to bring water as a precaution against the heat.

“We would like to add that it would be good to wear light-colored clothing and have water bottles with you to avoid heat stroke,” Loreche added.

Should voters feel sick or unwell before going to polling centers, DOH-7 advised them to undergo testing and isolation.

“Should you feel unwell before the actual election date, best to isolate and have yourself tested. If rapid antigen test or (RT-PCR) test is negative, and you really want to practice your right to vote, make sure that you avoid crowds, wear a mask properly, and minimize the time in the polling area and upon arrival at home , to isolate self,” said Loreche.

Around 5.2 million voters in Central Visayas will be casting their ballots this Monday for the 2022 national and local elections, based on statistics from the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

The upcoming polls will be historic since it will be the first time the elections are held during a pandemic.

I would like to commend the authorities for continuing to emphasize the importance of respecting health protocols, especially in the midst of Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations, when visiting relatives is part of our culture.

However, as celebrants make sure to screen for infection before home visits over the festive period, more people have opted to spend the break in shopping malls where measures are more lax.

I’m rather disappointed that, while valid, the advisory preceding the Raya essentially forced the public to choose sides: celebrate with family under careful scrutiny or shop the holidays with relative freedom.

My call is for the public to continue to follow standard operating procedures; they are in place for a reason – to protect us from harm. Just because you’ve chosen not to be part of Raya’s celebration doesn’t mean you have to give up social responsibility in the time of COVID-19.

Mozambique has reinforced the health protocol against COVID-19 at its main border crossing points with South Africa due to the recent increase in infections in the neighboring country, health authorities announced on Tuesday.

Health teams are positioned at crossing points to verify COVID-19 test results and ensure compliance with preventive measures among travelers entering Mozambique, Maputo Province Health Director Yolanda Santos said.

Health units have also stepped up surveillance, aimed at identifying and controlling any respiratory disease, said the director, whose province holds the biggest crossing point with South Africa.

Health Minister Armindo Tiago last week admitted the possibility of a huge increase in COVID-19 cases in the country soon due to the deteriorating COVID-19 situation in South Africa. Health authorities expect new infections to be characterized by mild cases, given that 91.4 percent of the country’s target population has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
