In a statement issued Monday, Obeidat called for applying all health protocols, adhering to public safety procedures, social distancing in classrooms and squares, and wearing masks.

He also emphasized the need for everyone to take vaccines to avoid an increase in the number of cases; particularly since 25 percent of students at the university haven't taken the vaccine yet.

He said that the university is counting on the students' commitment to these procedures in order to avoid negative health repercussions, and that penalties would be imposed related to this matter.

He added that there will be a review of the health protocol three months after the return of students, specifically in regard to dealing with students, according  to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.
