TThe office of Governor Carlos M. Padilla has extended food packs to the Nueva Vizcaya State University as assistance to all employees of the university who are Covid-19 positive.

Likewise, the NVSU family has also pooled financial resources to purchase food/medicine packs as assistance to all employees who are Covid-19 positive and those who are in home quarantine due to direct/close contacts with covid patients.
Meanwhile, Regent Ruth R. Padilla, OIC President of NVSU and at the same time the Chair- University Covid-19 Task Force has called for two-week lockdown of the university from October 11-24, 2021.
