Gunawan Budiyanto, M.P., IPM mentioned the academic activities would be conducted in face-to-face meetings in the following years. “For the endemic phase, we should learn to coexist with the source of the disease. However, we should apply a strict health protocol,” he said, as reported on the UMY site.

He also reported in the last four years, UMY did not obtain any report of the Covid-19 infection case from the students, lecturers, and educational personnel. He also appreciated the 108 Covid-19 volunteers that have worked hard during the pandemic. “Becoming a volunteer is a tough job. But the Covid-19 volunteers were persistent and kept doing their jobs until they finished. From securing the front gate to assisting to provide logistics for the self-isolation patients. Only Allah Almighty can repay all those good deeds all these years,” he said on Wednesday (08/06).
