NUS will lift Covid 19 zoning policy after students show their unhappiness


The national university of Singapore had introduced a zoning policy in June so that students could minimise their intermingling amidst the pandemic. But December 6th onwards the zoning policy will be uplifted as the students are unhappy.
The zoning policy had made the students unhappy, and they considered this move to be inconvenient as well as impractical, which is why on October 28th, around 600 students signed a petition for removing it.
The circular stated that the students could return to the campus at any time of the day, and even though they have classes or not. But the students should only be seen in their allocates zones and no other zones.
December 6th the beginning of the vacation period of the university will see a lift at the zoning restrictions as well as the hostels. The university stated that the lifting of the limits is because the community cases have started to decrease. The zoning policy laid down by the university has divided the students into five zones. Then they further dedicate the zones based on the living arrangements as well as the faculties. This is why the students stated that the policy is inconvenient as the students have now limited food choices and now have to take long routes to reach the neutral zones.
The circular which stated that the zones are being lifted also said that the students as well as the staff shouldn’t spend a lot of tomes at the canteens and should use the app that will notify them of the occupancy load and the best time for them to visit the canteen.
The university further stated that the administration has come to this conclusion after they collected evidence and examines the traffic data at the campus. They also sought views of the student leaders of the National University of Singapore Students’ Union, the leaders of the hostel, organisations and the faculty clubs.
