Eight CUHK students preliminarily tested positive for or confirmed with COVID-19 infection
The University was informed last night (12 February) that 8 students have been preliminarily tested positive for or confirmed with COVID-19 infection. Among them, 2 were confirmed with COVID-19 infection and 6 preliminarily tested positive.
Hostel rooms of the students concerned, the toilets and all communal areas, as well as the campus venues of their latest visits have been disinfected.
The students confirmed with COVID-19 infection have been transferred to separate rooms with individual bathrooms and toilets while they wait for further arrangements by the government. All students staying on the same wing as the confirmed cases conducted rapid antigen test last night. The University will closely liaise with the Centre for Health Protection and carry out necessary measures to follow up on the cases.
With the aim of protecting the health and safety of staff and students and to keep everyone abreast of the current situation within campus, a dashboard on the Confirmed COVID-19 cases in CUHK has been launched to provide updates on the number of University staff and students who have preliminarily tested positive for or confirmed with COVID-19 infection.
The University strongly urges all members to follow the health advice of the University’s Committee on Health Promotion and Protection on taking strict hygiene measures to safeguard the health of themselves and others.
