Update on Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Preventive Measures (26 March 2020) (只有英文版)

2020 年 03 月 26 日

The Department of Health started to issue quarantine orders under the Prevention and Control of Disease Regulation (Cap.599A) for compulsory home quarantine to people arriving in Hong Kong who have been to any one of all overseas countries/territories including Macau and Taiwan in the past 14 days.


In order to minimize the risk of community transmission, the Committee strongly advised all stakeholders that if they have to undergo compulsory quarantine, please stay at home or place of residency for 14 days before coming back to the campus.


If student or colleague is living with someone who is undergoing self-quarantine, they should not come to the campus if their home-mates are undergoing self-quarantine.  Same practices have been applied to our outsourced contractors and guests.


All stakeholders are advised to wear masks on campus, especially when having face-to-face communication with others, avoid social gathering and maintain appropriate social distance with other people as far as possible, stay away from crowded places, do not shake hands when meeting other people, avoid meal gatherings or other gatherings to reduce the chance of contacting infected persons, who may not present any symptoms, and minimise the risk of outbreak clusters emerging in the community.


While reiterating the importance of strict personal hygiene, the Committee would also like to take this opportunity to remind students and colleagues to pay special attention to their mental and psychosocial well-being. There are ways to release stress, such as, staying connect with someone you trust or who would make you happy by communication tools such as video chat, keeping yourself active by various appropriate exercises as well as keep learning on interesting things.


For information on COVID-19, please refer to the following links:
1.      Online Health Declaration Form: all students and staff shall complete this before coming to campus or when there is any change in status after last submission.

2.      If feeling unwell, you should wear a surgical mask and seek medical consultation promptly. It is advised to go to the nearest emergency room of any public hospital. The closest one to our campus is Tuen Mun Hospital. You might also go to the private clinics which join the Enhanced Laboratory Surveillance Programme of Hospital Authority and can produce deep throat saliva.
