The situation with COVID -19 is a true resilience and continuity test for many industries. Don Honorio Ventura State University implemented both internal and external precautionary measures to play its role in the fight against COVID-19. 

Through the initiative of the Office of Students Affairs and Services, memoranda and guidelines were issued to remind students about the importance of wearing masks and using of alcohol inside the University. Group assemblies were discouraged to prevent the spread of virus. A forum sponsored by the Department of Health last January was attended by the University Administrative Council, Faculty, Staff and Student Organization Officers. A massive information drive was also implemented through tarpaulins.

Additionally, alcohols were stationed in frontline offices available for use by anyone. Furthermore, University Task Force Covid-19 was constituted to implement preventive measures to secure the health and wellness of members of the DHVSU Community. DHVSU Gender and Development (GAD) Office also supported the University-wide clean up drive and disinfection last March 13, 2020. 

The University also extended its help to the frontliners stationed in checkpoints by donating sustenance such as vitamins, food and mineral water, through the initiative of the University President, Dr. Enrique Baking. Moreover, vitamins and alcohol were given to indigent students and responders. 

Furthermore, the Extension Unit of DHVSU Task Force Covid-19 manufactured customized face shields distributed to Bacolor MDRRMO and BFP Bacolor, as well as DHVSU health workers and security personnel. Health workers from Jose B. Lingad Memorial Regional Hospital and Diosdado Macapagal Hospital were also recipients of these customized face shields. Customized face masks were donated by a DHVSU retiree to protect LGU and security enforcers acting as frontliners who are exposed in public places.
