Dear SMU Community,

We have witnessed unprecedented increases in both the daily COVID 19 infections and deaths in South Africa since the end of the festive season, in what is described as the second wave. In the Communique from DHET dated 31 December 2020, it was recommended that a social compact be signed between the Vice Chancellor, SRC Leadership and the trade union Leadership.

In light of the above, there was an urgent stakeholder meeting to unite in action with a view to mitigating the spread of the virus and transmissions on campus and ensure that sufficient care is taken to build a social compact relating to the responsibilities of each person to avoid further outbreaks of Covid-19 at SMU (see SMU COVID-19 Social Compact Agreement).
