The lockdown of a BOSCH campus has temporarily lifted but a mother and her three children remain in lockdown at the private university in Cape Town.
The lockdown is expected to end Thursday and allow students to return to classes.
The school said that after discussions with its students, the lockdown is no longer a “safe place” and that it will provide safe spaces for students to play, study and socialize.
“It’s just a little bit too late,” said Mabhisa Nyane, a third-year history student.
“The people are doing their best to make sure that it’s safe.
I think that’s what we need to do.”
Nyane said she is still concerned about the students’ safety but is trying to focus on academics.
“I’m just trying to get my studies back on track.
I want to continue my studies and make sure I get my degree,” she said.
The school’s website says it’s “taking steps to provide safe and secure environments for all our students to work, study, and socialise.”BOSCH’s online safety guide advises students to be vigilant and to stay away from people who might be exhibiting symptoms of the virus.
The website also recommends using masks or face coverings and using a closed-circuit TV.
The guide also advises students not to leave their cars unattended, take pictures of any suspicious or suspicious-looking individuals and not share information about themselves or their school on social media.
