The Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) Training that was slated for the 16th-20th and 23rd-27th of March at the University of the West Indies, Mona has been cancelled.

The cancellation is as a part of the wider travel bans in place to protect persons from the spread of the novel coronavirus, also referred to as COVID-19. In this case, health and safety considerations come first.

With COVID-19 continuing to spread, we encourage persons to follow the guidelines for mitigating further transmission.

  1. Wash hands frequently with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
  2. Use hand sanitizers with at least 70% alcohol content.
  3. Stay at least 3 feet away from persons who are coughing or sneezing.
  4. Do not touch your mouth, eyes and nose.
  5. Practice social distancing and avoid large gatherings of people.
