In the press conference, Datuk Noraini also informed that all university students and staff who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 are expected to return to campus in stages starting October 15 where face to face classes will resume.  

Likewise all tertiary institutions in all states, regardless of which phase of the National Recovery Plan they are in, are expected to reopen campus. 

Those who have yet to receive their vaccination can do so by visiting any vaccination centre (PPV). During the walk-in, students and staff can present their IDs to be given priority. 

In order to return to campus, all individuals will have to obtain permits from the police, or permission/offer letters from their respective institutions. 

Datuk Noraini also explained that students can choose to return to campus in their personal vehicles, be dropped off by their parents who must also be fully vaccinated, carpool with fully vaccinated individuals, or by flight. 

As for students who will not be able to return to their campus with a valid reason can opt to attend online or hybrid classes.  

Universities are encouraged to provide students with Covid-19 self test kits upon arriving on campus.
