Now two months into the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila and nearby provinces, the psychological and emotional toll on our entire community has been quite significant. I deeply appreciate the efforts of all sectors of the community who continue to work hard to deliver the standard of education expected of us by our students and support other members of the community in their own little way. I would like to commend in particular our students who, despite the situation, have continued to work hard on their learning journey with the school.
It has been more than a month since the Government declared the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Luzon. Last April 24, the ECQ was further extended for Metro Manila and nearby provinces until May 15, 2020. The University understands the tremendous impact this has had on our learning and work experience, and our lives in general.
COVID-19 caught the entire global community by surprise and as a result, the Philippine Government declared the Enhanced Community Quarantine last March 15, 2020. As a University that is bound and faithful to its educational commitment, Philippine Women’s University adopted flexible alternative learning approaches to scale to the challenge.
With the re-opening of online enrollment last March 18 under the government mandated Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) intended to stop the spread of COVID-19, the various units of the University have worked tirelessly to allow our students to enlist online for their classes as easily as possible. Admittedly, there are still issues which we are continually addressing.
On March 16, 2020, President Duterte announced the implementation of an enhanced community quarantine in the entire Luzon. Enhanced community quarantine means strict home quarantine implemented in all households, the suspension of transportation, the regulation of food and essential health services, and the heightened presence of uniformed personnel.
