Health Advice for Amber Code Holders entering the School Campus

26 Aug 2022 (Fri)


Dear Colleagues and Students,

The Government has implemented the addition of the Red Code and Amber Code into the Vaccine Pass.  Confirmed cases will be categorised as persons with a Red Code who will be subject to isolation / quarantine requirement, and inbound persons from overseas places or Taiwan will be categorised as persons with an Amber Code.  Amber Code holders will have to spend three days in hotel quarantine and then undergo four days of medical surveillance at home.  They will be given an Amber Code on their LeaveHomeSafe (LHS) mobile app to restrict their movements to scheduled / specified premises including restaurants, but they will be allowed to take public transport and go to work and school with mask on at all times.

If you are an Amber Code holder, you are required to follow the requirements and instructions from the Department of Health in monitoring your health condition.  Should you wish to enter the School campus to work / to teach / to attend class during the 4-day medical surveillance at home, you are reminded to observe the following:

  • Conduct daily Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) with negative result before you enter the School campus
  • Wear a mask at all times while you are on the School campus, maintain hand hygiene and avoid social gathering, and food and drinks
  • If you are a staff member / full-time student and need to have lunch during the day, you are asked to have lunch on your own preferably at an isolated corner, avoid sharing of meal, and put on your mask immediately after lunch
  • Take body temperature daily and if feeling unwell or having any symptoms of infection, seek medical attention immediately and refrain from entering the School campus

Moreover, a set of more detailed FAQs has been developed to address concerns from persons requiring access to HKU SPACE premises / HKU campus.  These FAQs can be found at HKU SPACE COVID-19 Info Hub, and updates will be made from time to time to take account of possible changes in Government guidelines and University arrangements.  Students and colleagues are recommended to check in regularly.

Please always make personal and group health your top priority.
