With reference to Chulalongkorn University Announcement on
Guidelines for Instructional Management under an Extraordinary Circumstance as
a Result of COVID-19 Infection Outbreaks dated 5 March 2020, it has now been
established that Thailand is likely to have an increasing number of infected

second semester of the 2019 academic year proceed with orderliness and

indicated in the TQF 2. However, every effort should be made to reduce or avoid
activities deemed at risk of COVID-19 infection.

final exam of the 2019 academic year, instructors are requested to consider
