On 1 May 2020, the government announced that business activities in most sectors of the economy will be allowed to operate from 4 May 2020 subject to the conditions and guidelines set by the authorities.
In line with this announcement, private higher education institutions (IPTS) are allowed to commence management operations from 4 May 2020 according to their organisational needs. However, all IPTS need to be responsible for the implementation of their management operations.

Where possible, the institutions should consider flexible working hours and encourage its employees to work from home.
It is important to note that face-to-face teaching and learning activities are not allowed in order to avoid any form of gathering.
