Compulsory Quarantine in Designated Quarantine Hotels / Home Quarantine

If you are required to have the compulsory quarantine in designated quarantine hotels or at home (or other self-arranged accommodation), please see here for a list of hotels for quarantine purposes. Prior to entering the residential halls or participating in classes, you will be obligated to undergo and complete all compulsory quarantine and health control requirements of the HKSAR Government.

If you are required to undergo compulsory home quarantine (for inbound travellers from the Mainland China or Macao only), please go here for infection control advice.

In case you are a close contact of any of the confirmed cases, you may be sent to a designated quarantine centre as required by the HKSAR Government.
