Asia Pacific College (APC) is monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak. The health and well-being of everyone on campus is the school’s priority now. To date, no APC student, faculty or staff has been positively diagnosed with COVID-19.
Nonetheless, contingency plans have been set up to handle any eventuality. APC management will continue to update the community regularly.
APC is following the COVID-19 Prevention programs specified by the Makati City government and CHED:
- Monitoring the body temperature of everyone coming into the building
- Alcohol available in entrances and individual offices for disinfection
- Anti-bacterial soap available near wash basins for thorough hand cleaning
- Wipe-down of elevator buttons and handrails with disinfectants
A team of cleaners has been formed to follow the heightened disinfecting protocols, focusing on disinfecting common areas of the building during off-peak hours.
