Two students from Daystar main campus in Athi River have tested positive for coronavirus.

According to a memo sent out to the school on Friday from the DVC Finance office, the two students have gone home to seek medical attention and their contacts traced and informed.

DVC Finance Dr. Muturi Wachira has noted negligence among members of the institution in observing Covid-19 protocols such as wearing of masks correctly, washing of hands and social distancing.

“It has been noted with great concern, that some of our students, faculty and staff are not very keen to observe the laid out Covid-19 protocols,” read the memo.

Dr. Wachira has called on the University to adhere to the Ministry of Health guidelines in order to prevent infection and spread of the virus.

The University has put in measures against Covid-19 such as sanitization stations, handwashing tanks and temperature checks. Moreover, high traffic areas such as hostels and meeting rooms are regularly fumigated.

A major fumigation exercise has been scheduled to take place this weekend at the Athi River campus.
