|Q1. If my classes are all online, am I able to head back to campus for CCAs?
Yes, with reference to Provost’s circular on the 9 October 2020, students are allowed to return to campus on any day that you have at least one class (lectures, tutorials, labs, seminars, workshops, etc.), with fewer than 50 students, regardless of the mode of teaching (online, face-to-face, hybrid). As long as you are permitted to return to campus, you will be permitted to conduct or attend face-to-face CCAs.
|Q2. What are the types of volunteering work that can be conducted outside of campus?
Regular volunteering work which includes house to house visits, giving out food, medical support, etc. can be conducted so long as it is permissible by the beneficiary. All safe-distancing measures and CCA guidelines apply when conducting CCAs outside of campus (i.e.: zoning, 5 pax per group, not more than 50 students, etc.)
|Q3. Does zoning applies when conducting meetings/trainings/activities outside of campus?|
|Yes, all activities conducted outside of campus are restricted to zoning regulations imposed by the NUS management. Activities have to be conducted in groups of 5, with not more than 50 pax. Students are only allowed to interact with students from the same zone and group. Intermingling amongst groups are not allowed. It is recommended that the student group schedule different locations/timings for different zones.|
Q4. For speech and drama practices, the total number of pax allowed in a room is 5. Is the instructor included or excluded in the 5 pax per room rule?
The instructor if present is included in the 5 pax per room. Your instructor would have to be masked up at all times and social distancing has to be practised. If your instructor is not from NUS, s/he has to be tagged to a zone and s/he can only provide face-to-face training for students from the same zone.
|Q5. If I am practising singing in an open space, can I practise in groups of 5?|
Yes, you may. However, you will have to be masked up at all times, maintain 1m apart from each other and 2m apart from each group. You are only allowed to practise with students from the same zone too.
|Q6: Phase 3 of Singapore’s reopening could occur by year-end, would it be possible to hold a physical event on the university campus in 2021?|
|Student Organisations can currently hold physical event on campus subject to the current CCA guidelines, safe management measures and zoning etc. With regard to Phase 3, the University will continue to take lead from the Ministry of Education as well as the NUS Office of Safety, Health and Environment. Once more information on how activities can be conducted on campus are made available, OSA will update all student organisations on how CCAs can be resumed under Phase 3.|
