Mandatory Online Health Self-Check (For Those Who Are Coming to Campus)
Effective September 1, all members of the community must perform a health self-check and answer a 30-second questionnaire on each day they plan to come to campus (New Cairo and Tahrir Square). You will not be admitted from the gate unless you present the results of the self-check to the security at the gates.
