April 3 COVID-19 advisory

03 April, 2020

The CMT and the EOC established in response to the COVID-19 crisis continue to take action and wish to provide the following updates.
These are the items that we wish to update you on today.

KAUST cases

We would like to update the community about the seven positive cases identified on campus. The one remaining case has now completed the MOH testing requirements returning a second negative test. The person is now discharged, and will follow the MOH quarantine requirements.

Food or food packaging handling

Currently there is no evidence of food or food packaging being associated with transmission of COVID-19. However, if you are concerned about contamination of food or food packaging you have purchased from the grocery store, we recommend you follow the guidelines included on this page

Staying informed


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.
