Phase 3 of Vaccine Pass to be implemented on 31 May

27 May 2022

Dear colleagues and students,

Further to our announcement earlier this month, we would like to give a gentle reminder that Phase 3 of the Vaccine Pass scheme will start soon. You are urged to take the following action to ensure both your health and a smooth entry into the campus.

Update on vaccination requirements

Phase 3 of the government’s Vaccine Pass scheme is scheduled to commence on 31 May 2022. All students, staff, alumni and visitors of the University are reminded that compliance with the requirement of Phase 3 of the Vaccine Pass scheme is a condition of being physically on campus and an extensive range of premises around Hong Kong. Information regarding the dosage requirements and other elements of the scheme can be found on the government website. We strongly advise all CUHK members who are eligible to receive their third dose as soon as possible.

Renew your revaccination records

All staff and students accessing campus via CU Link Cards are required to update their vaccination records with information about their third dose and/or report their infection record via the COVID-19 Vaccination/Regular Testing Report System (VTR), declaring they have fully complied with the updated arrangements for Phase 3 of the Vaccine Pass scheme. We also urge you to upload your vaccination records to the latest version of the LeaveHomeSafe app so that you can continue to access facilities such as canteens on campus, and other venues across the city.

Although the city’s number of cases remains relatively low and stable, small outbreaks have been recorded over the past two weeks. The University will continue to strictly observe social distancing measures, which include restrictions on group gatherings and catering, as advised by the government and the Centre for Health Protection. We will continue to closely monitor the pandemic situation in Hong Kong, and adjust our measures as required. Please visit our Act Together Against COVID-19 website and the FAQ page for the most detailed and up-to-date information about our response to the pandemic.

Yours sincerely,

Emergency Response Group
The Chinese University of Hong Kong
