CUHK Announces the Latest Arrangements

30 Nov 2020

In view of the worsening risk of the spread of COVID-19, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) announces special work arrangements that will be implemented from Wednesday (2 December). Each department/unit will review and maintain essential and necessary services. Except for those staff providing essential and necessary services, staff members whose work permits offsite handling will work on shift or work from home. This temporary arrangement will last for two weeks until 15 December and the University will closely monitor and review the situation as appropriate. Staff members will be informed of the detailed arrangements for attendance, work from home or rotation by their respective department/unit heads.

The University is adopting the hybrid mode of teaching and learning. Most face-to-face classes can be conducted online at the same time if needed. Except for a few courses, the examinations will also be conducted online. The relating units/departments will notify teachers and students of the details separately by email.

Starting from 2 December, all canteens on CUHK campus can only accommodate two people per table.

The University advises all employees to pay attention to personal hygiene and take appropriate health protection measures. Wearing a mask on campus in accordance with the Government regulations is also required, and it is suggested that staff members avoid attending group gatherings.

During this period, the services of the University Clinic will continue to operate as usual. For details of the opening hours of other facilities of the University, please refer to the announcements of the respective offices.
