With the declaration of State of Public Health Emergency throughout the Philippines due to Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) through Proclamation No. 922 by the President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and pursuant to the Orders of the Albay Governor and the City Mayor of Legazpi, classes in Forbes College shall be SUSPENDED effective 16 March 2020 until FURTHER NOTICE.
A skeletal workforce shall be maintained for essential and vital work beginning March 16, 2020. College personnel are advised to coordinate with the Administrative Manager and VP for Academic operations for further instructions.
The Forbes College community is urged to continue to practice good personal hygiene (i.e., washing hands/sanitize as needed), social distancing, adopt and maintain healthy lifestyle. To reiterate, everyone is advised to stay away from crowded places, avoid hospitals unless necessary, and avoid unnecessary travels.
The suspension of classes IS NOT EQUIVALENT to vacation. We need your CO-RESPONSIBILITY and COOPERATION in this trying time. Let us help our family, community, and our beloved COUNTRY surpass this PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY.
Please be guided accordingly.
