Reporting Protocols

Useful Links
  • The University has clear protocols on case reporting for both students and staff. Reporting channels for confirmed or suspected cases have been circulated to all Deans and Heads to facilitate prompt reporting of cases to the Task Force on Infectious Diseases (TFID). Learn more here.
  • Once the TFID is notified of a case, liaison with the Centre for Health Protection and contact tracing will be coordinated by the University Health Service, who will work closely with all concerned parties to ensure proper actions are taken by the University to minimise further transmission among the university community.
  • Where necessary, the University can arrange for members to be quickly tested for COVID-19 in both public and private laboratories. The TFID assisted by the University Health Service will assess the need for testing for each case.
  • Anyone who is determined by the Centre for Health Protection as a confirmed case of COVID-19 or a close contact of a confirmed case, please report immediately to the Task Force on Infectious Diseases by email to ncovstaff@hku.hk (for staff) or ncov@hku.hk (for students) or by phone at 3917 2882 (during non-office hours) for follow-up action.
