SOLOMON Islands Students Association (SISA) in Fiji is on standby in light of the Omicron threat in that country.
The virus is now in community transmission in Fiji.
It is reportedly more versatile than the Delta strain in terms of being transmitted among persons.
And, SISA is prepared to gear into action to help and assist students should any case be reported.
In a brief comment to Island Sun, President of SISA, Melissa Siapu said SISA Office will continue to encourage students to adhere to the covid restrictions given by the Fiji govt.
“We are also on standby to assist the Solomon Islands High Com Office to reach out to students if there is a need,” she said.
Island Sun understands that University of South Pacific semester one of 2021 will begin in March, however mode of learning is yet to be confirmed.
It is likely that most courses will be offered online to avoid social gathering and also satisfy social distancing.
