The Office of the University President has issued Memorandum no. 93 s. 2021 placing Isabela State University under University-wide lockdown from March 31 to April 15, 2021.

This is to prevent the further spread of the virus following the recently recorded CoViD fatalities. Campuses were enjoined to implement stringent health measures and the observance of work arrangements.

All faculty and staff, including Contract-of-Service and Job Orders, will adopt work-from-home alternative work arrangement, with accomplishment reports to be submitted via electronic/digital means to immediate supervisors to prevent physical contact/face-to-face interactions.

Meanwhile, essential personnel will be allowed to report, but not limited to face-to-face, such as Finance Services, for vital financial transactions. Transportation for those essential personnel will be provided from point-to-point, with adherence to social distancing protocols, and the wearing of face shield and face mask policy.

All ISU personnel are advised to stay at home, unless one has to attend essential work, buy food or medicine, or go to the hospital.

Infirmary personnel in all campuses are directed to regularly monitor employees who are tested positive including those who are direct contacts, in coordination with health authorities like Rural Health Units (RHUs) and Department of Health (DOH).

Reporting and documentation of CoViD cases in all campuses must be submitted to the University CoViD Crisis Manager, Atty. Romano P. Cammayo, VP for Administrative and Finance Services (AFS), for consolidation and record purposes, copy furnished to the Office of the President.

Campuses were also advised to conduct regular disinfection of buildings and facilities.
