Before the COVID-19 Pandemic, the campus of the American University of Antigua College of Medicine was a hive of activity, with students shuffling to get to their respective classes and administrative services fully functional.
But now just as any other educational institution, AUA has been affected and has been forced to make changes.
Recently, our newsroom asked Vernon Solomon, AUA’s vice president of administration and community affairs about the changes they were forced to make as a result of the spread of the virus.
Approximately 150-200 students have chosen to remain in the country, to utilize the college’s library and to engage in other activities, while others have returned home and are continuing their studies virtually, Mr. Solomon explained.
Last weekend, AUA offered its campus as a vaccination site for senior educators to be inoculated. This weekend they will accommodate another group of people.
