In light of the current local outbreaks of COVID-19, the University will make further adjustments to its operations. Apart from staffing for emergency and essential services, staff shall work from home to provide basic services for the duration of the week from July 20 to July 26, 2020, subject to review thereafter. Heads of Departments/units will communicate with their staff members about the detailed work arrangements to be made based on the situation on the ground.
All undergraduate and taught postgraduate face-to-face teaching will also be suspended for the coming week from July 20, 2020, subject to review thereafter, with the exception of the clinical programmes and the examinations in those programmes, for which the Faculties of Dentistry and Medicine will reach out separately to students concerned.
Individual campus facilities and catering outlets will make necessary adjustments to their services and operations. Specifically, the Main Library and the Chi Wah Learning Commons will remain open with limited services. The dental and physiotherapy clinics of the University Health Service, and the sports facilities under the Centre for Sports and Exercise will be closed. On-campus catering will continue on a reduced basis. Please check with the COVID-19 INFO HUB on the University Main Page for services update.
The University will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely, and make the necessary adjustments. Please continue to stay vigilant and make personal and group health your top priority.
