May 18 COVID-19 Advisory

Posted on May 18, 2020

KAUST cases

The number of positive cases identified on campus remains at 15. We keep in touch with and monitor all our previous discharged cases and we wish them well.

Enjoy a complimentary meal/Iftar

With the month of Ramadan coming to an end, and in the spirit of the season, Community Life is providing a complimentary meal to everyone currently at KAUST. This is our way of sending our best wishes to everyone at KAUST during this time.

The offer has had a very fast take up, with the 300 meal daily maximum already reached for the rest of this week. Slots are available from Monday, May 25 onwards. We will continue to provide meals until everybody has had theirs, so do not worry if you have not placed your order yet. Please check your order before confirming as it is not possible to amend it once placed.
 
This is a big food production and logistical exercise, please be patient with the team.

Delivery of requested face coverings

Starting today, Monday, May 18 at 5:00 p.m. the Troop 13 Boy Scouts, in conjunction with KAUST Health, Safety & Environment, will begin delivering the face coverings requested by community members for the whole week, so watch your doorstep.


Once again, we’d like to thank you for your cooperation and ongoing adherence to directives. These have been designed to keep you safe and to help manage the crisis.
