A descriptive design was used in the study which attempts to outline systematically a situation, problem, phenomenon, service or program, or provides information about the living conditions of a community, or describes attitudes towards an issue (Kumar, 2011). The respondents of this study were the students of the Bachelor of Science in Legal Management and Bachelor of Science in Accounting Information System of the College of Business, Entrepreneurship and Accountancy of the Andrews Campus where a convenience sampling technique was employed using the online google form questionnaire which is a checklist that has been modified by the researchers based on the standard of the Inter-Agency Task Force on Covid-19 when it comes to the precautionary measures needed to avoid the spread of the virus.
