In light of the latest developments of the novel coronavirus, the University has decided to implement special work arrangements after the Chinese New Year holidays (starting from January 29). University offices will be closed to students, staff and the public until February 2, 2020. Heads of relevant departments will arrange for core staff to work on campus as needed to provide emergency and essential services. Other staff members shall work from home and are not required to return to the offices during this period. Heads of Departments will communicate with their staff members separately.

During the period from January 29 to February 2, 2020, the Library, Learning Commons, University Health Service (UHS) clinics and sports facilities under the Centre for Sports and Exercise will be closed. On-campus catering will continue on a reduced basis, for which separate announcement will be made. The UHS will continue to support the University on matters related to the novel coronavirus.
