With reference to a meeting of the Communicable Diseases Supreme Committee dated 05.01.2022 regarding the revisal of the quarantine and isolation processes, it was unanimously decided that the quarantine and isolation process of the staff and students of our university be implemented as follows.

COVID-19 positive persons:

The isolation period is 7 days. At the end of the 7th day, patients are given a PCR test for control purposes. If the test result is positive, the quarantine period of the patients is terminated on the 14th day. PCR results performed prior to the completion of the isolation period will be deemed invalid.

Close contacts:

Fully vaccinated persons (2 doses for Janssen; 3 doses for other vaccines) who have come into contact with a COVID-19 positive person will continue their daily activities wearing a mask and monitoring possible symptoms. If people as such do not have any symptoms, they will have an antigen test on the 5th day; In the event of having symptoms, they will take antigen tests earlier than the 5th day.

Partially-vaccinated or unvaccinated people will remain isolated for 7 days and will take a PCR test at the end of the 7th day. If the result is negative, their isolation period will come to an end. If the test result is positive, the positive patient follow-up process will commence.


Since the Omicron variant has been detected in our country, there is a high rate of transmission throughout the TRNC, and early detection of possible cases is important in preventing the transmission of the disease within our institution; In this respect, it was unanimously decided to continue to request a negative antigen result from fully-vaccinated persons once a week and from unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals every 72 hours.


Unanimously approved; Effective from 10 December 2022 and including the end of semester final examination week commencing on 17 January 2022, the university community is required to exhibit utmost care in

  1. Adhering to the rules pertaining to the use of suitable masks and maintaining physical distance,
