HKU will introduce a vaccine mandate beginning 17 Jan, 2022, the first day of the second semester.
Under the mandate, everyone entering the campus must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 or, alternatively, to undergo weekly Covid-19 tests on a self-paying basis.
Exemptions will be granted only to individuals with medical certificates showing they are unable to take the vaccine, said Professor Ian Holliday, Vice-president for teaching and learning, in a message to the university community.
In a follow-up message on 19 Nov,, Prof Holliday further announced that “remote learning” will not be supported in the second semester. All students are expected to be in HK and be able to attend classes by then.
