Up to date, ninety-nine percent of all BUV employees and eighty-five percent of all BUV students have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine.

  5. Employees who may have had close contact with the employee have been issued with instructions in accordance with Van Giang CDC.

Actions scheduled for implementation:

  1. All employees will be tested for COVID-19 or as instruction from authority.

  3. Students will continue to study online and will not attend the Campus.

  5. Going forward BUV will continue to work to prevent the spread of COVID-19 inside and outside the University placing top priority on the safety, health and well-being of all our students, business partners, employees and their families.

If you are not an employee of BUV and are identified as a categorized F1 in relation to BUV’s infected case by Van Giang CDC’s COVID-19 management system, we have been advised that you should inform your local Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to get guidance and support as regulated.
