Around 800 Students of St. Louis University in Baguio Join Limited Face-to-Face Classes

ST. LOUIS UNIVERSITY IN BAGUIO – The said educational institution in Baguio will start the implementation of the limited face-to-face classes.

Almost everything was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Nowadays, when you walk by the streets, people are geared with face masks and face shields for protection and as part of the health protocols against the spread of the disease.

Several local government units (LGUs) have sanctions for those who will be caught roaming outdoors or in public places without a face mask. Most establishments like shopping malls, grocery stores, hardware, and pharmacies also require face masks and face shields upon entry.

Even the educational system in the Philippines was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of the classes starting in June, for the school year 2020-2021, it started in October.

Furthermore, most students now are under blended learning. Teachers use modules and online classes in delivering the lessons as students stay at home.

In college, based on a report on ABS-CBN News, there are universities that were given the go signal to start holding limited face-to-face classes. One of these is St. Louis University in Baguio.

St. Louis University in Baguio is set to hold limited face-to-face classes for nursing and other medical courses students beginning Monday. The school has passed the inspection of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and around 800 students agreed to participate in the face-to-face classes,

Based on the report, the attendance to face-to-face classes is voluntary. SLU College of Medicine Dean Dr. Anthony Domantay stressed that medical students cannot learn the skills online and they must do it personally to establish these skills.

“Once they have the skills, then we will fill them to hospitals,” he said.

Reportedly, health protocols will be highly observed and once the students are already in their 6-month stay in hospitals for the practice of their profession, there are restrictions like they are not allowed to go to COVID wards.
