This follows the announcement by the President, Cyril Ramaphosa, on measures to combat the virus.
University spokesperson, Lacea Loader, says the executive management of the university will make a decision on steps to be taken in response to the recommendations by a task team.
She adds this task team was formed earlier this month by the University’s Rector and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Francis Petersen.
Ramaphosa on Sunday declared a national state of disaster in South Africa and announced school closures and travel bans as the number of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in the country rose to sixty-one.
He said all schools would close from Wednesday and gatherings of more than 100 people were prohibited.
