The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) marked another milestone on Monday, December 6 as it marked a blended mode of flag raising ceremony with a limited number of students in campus.
PLM President Emmanuel Leyco led the brief program at the grounds as he also inspected campus facilities as these are being prepared for the return of a limited number of students for face-to-face learning.
The return to face-to-face learning, which started with the College of Physical Therapy last November 29 and the College of Nursing on December 7, coincided with the Department of Health reporting that the Philippines is now under minimal risk of COVID-19 transmission, as well as high vaccination rates among residents.
Members of the faculty, staff, and now students personally witnessed the raising of the Philippine flag at the Tanghalang Bayan, adhering to physical distancing, while hundreds of other members of the PLM community tuned in via Zoom.
"We are happy to welcome a limited number of our students slowly back to our campus. This marks our opportunity to restart and rebuild learning under the new normal," President Leyco said.
"We remind everyone to adhere to strict health protocols to prevent COVID-19 transmission within our community so that we can eventually return to full school-based learning in the months to come."
PLM continues to retrofit its classrooms and other learning facilities to improve air flow and keep the spaces COVID-safe.
