New! Starting 24 February, 2022, in accordance with the government’s expanded vaccine bubble requirement, everyone is required to be vaccinated for accessing “scheduled premises” under the Prevention & Control of Disease Ordinance (Cap. 599), i.e. University catering and sports facilities, library, and Shaw Auditorium, unless they have medical reasons or are under 12 years old. The CAP will be modified to allow for easy recognition of those who are vaccinated and those who are on testing.
