Important announcement: Extension of online learning and work-from-home arrangements

31 Jan 2022

Dear colleagues and students,

The University continues to closely monitor the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 in Hong Kong.

Given ongoing community transmission, and the continuation of government social distancing measures, this message is to inform you that the University will continue the arrangements specified in the last announcement of 23 January 2022, as well as the work-from-home recommendations, until Friday 18 February 2022.

This decision has been made out of an abundance of caution, and its timing is designed to give staff and students some certainty about coming arrangements prior to the commencement of the Lunar New Year holiday.

The University will review these arrangements in the week commencing 14 February 2022.

Technical and learning support, including laptop computers on loan are available to ensure students are provided with as much support as possible as we continue with online learning and teaching over the coming weeks.

We strongly recommend that you take the opportunity to get vaccinated or receive your booster dose as soon as you become eligible – vaccination remains a key ingredient in ensuring our ongoing success against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please ensure you upload your vaccination records to the Leave Home Safe app, check you are using the latest version, and ensure you make use of the app wherever it is available.

Yours sincerely,

Emergency Response Group
