Confirmed Cases on Campus

Container
Title
Is there any case of “confirmed patient” or “home quarantine” on campus? Will home-quarantine persons pose a threat to other residents and increase risk of campus community outbreak of the COVID-19?
Text Area

The latest COVID-19 related figures on campus can be found here. Residents on campus undergoing quarantine are reminded to strictly follow the Centre for Health Protection’s Infection Control Advice for Person under Compulsory Home Quarantine. The University also closely monitors the campus home quarantine situation.

 

Students with a University hostel place should undertake quarantine off-campus but NOT use their University hostel for quarantine.

 

New staff members with on-campus accommodation should undertake quarantine at his/her staff quarter for quarantine.

 

Title
What is the University’s arrangement when there is a confirmed COVID-19 case among university members? What if the confirmed case is a campus resident?
Text Area

When there is a confirmed case, the University will inform the campus community by updating the COVID-19 related figures on the webpage, and the concerned department or office will reconstruct the campus activities and contacts of the diagnosed person in the past 14 days from the date of diagnosis. Necessary follow up actions include informing and offering assistance to contacts and disinfecting areas visited by the diagnosed person. If the confirmed case is a campus resident, special cleaning and disinfection will be conducted in the building the person lives in, and necessary advice and assistance will be provided to other building occupants.

 

Title
What is the University’s arrangement if there is a campus-related, non-HKUST member confirmed case?
Text Area

If there is any confirmed case of non-HKUST members (e.g. contract staff, visitors, etc.), the University will collaborate with the Government Centre for Health Protection, who will advise university management on taking appropriate infection control measures. The University will support to take any necessary follow-up actions, including tracing contacts and cleaning the concerned areas.
