On-Campus COVID-19 Protocol

Namaste!

A key driving vision to establish Rashtram School of Public Leadership is to nurture public leaders who can thrive and lead humanity through the VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) world. Incidentally, such a VUCA situation has been forced upon us in the form of the pandemic. It has put all of us under duress. While we are facing such a severe health crisis, we are also compelled to battle the mental stress this has caused us. Truly, there cannot be a greater example of a volatile and ambiguous situation. The planning of even simple things for a day or a week in advance is now mired in uncertainty.

At Rashtram, we hold the wellbeing of our learners and faculty to be of utmost importance. This is always the primary consideration in our decision making.

We are hopeful that this second wave will abate, particularly with the vaccination drive to include everyone above 18 years of age. As long as the government or the UGC does not mandate the closing of campuses, we will start the programme on 05-July-2021. We have planned to ensure the safest possible environment for the Rashtram Accelerator & MAPL cohort. We have instituted a protocol to keep the Rashtram campus safe and COVID free.

Compulsory Wearing Masks

Regular Temperature Check

Periodic Hand Sanitisation

Ensuring Good Ventilation

Sanitisation Of All Facilities

Access To Doctor & Counsellor

  • All learners and faculty arriving on campus are advised to get at least their first dose of vaccination.
  • It is mandatory for learners to undergo a health checkup and bring a medical certificate before arriving in Sonipat.
  • In case you are unsure about your health, we suggest that you undergo an RT-PCR test and obtain negative results two days before you start from your location.
  • If you suspect that you might have been exposed to infection during your travel, you can inform us and we will arrange a facility for you to isolate yourself and get tested. You can come to campus after you receive your negative test results.
  • Under extenuating circumstances, if you are unable to get even the first shot of the vaccine, we will arrange a facility for you to isolate yourself, get vaccinated, remain under observation and then come to campus.
  • We will arrange for the second shot of the vaccine in Sonipat, for those who require it.
  • Proper social distancing, wearing of masks and frequent use of sanitisers are compulsory on campus.

The protocol might be periodically amended or updated according to guidelines issued by the government or the UGC.

The protocol applies to everyone involved with the Rashtram Accelerator Programme, arriving from outside Sonipat. It is pertinent to note that since food and accommodation are managed within the campus, there are as few points of interactions with outsiders as possible. Additionally, our cohort size is limited. All of these factors ensure a low possibility of transmission. Therefore all our learners and family members can be reassured that we are doing everything possible that the campus is safe and hygienic. 

We encourage you to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns at namaste@rashtram.org.
