Update on HKU SPACE Vaccine Pass and Campus Access (Phase Two from 30 Apr 2022)
- 30 Apr 2022 (Sat)
Dear colleagues and students,
HKU SPACE follows HKU policy which aligns with the Government’s Vaccine Pass policy and introduced the HKU SPACE Vaccine Pass and Campus Access with various infection control measures to safeguard our health against the COVID-19 pandemic.
During Phase One of the HKU SPACE Vaccine Pass (from 28 February to 29 April 2022), the School members were required to use the Green Pass System for gaining access to HKU SPACE premises / HKU campus.
To be further in line with the Government’s Vaccine Pass policy, starting from 30 April 2022 (Phase Two), HKU SPACE members will no longer need to use the Green Pass System at campus entrances. Instead, anyone wishing to enter the HKU SPACE premises / HKU campus will be asked to use the LeaveHomeSafe (LHS) mobile application to scan the venue QR code.
The venue QR code has been displayed at all entrances to the HKU SPACE premises / HKU campus. Once you scan it, LHS will automatically display the QR code of your vaccination record, exemption certificate or recovery record to indicate your compliance with the Vaccine Pass. For further information, please refer to the FAQs about HKU SPACE Vaccine Pass policy as which will take effect from 30 April 2022 (Phase Two).
The opportunity is also taken to remind all that Phase Three of the Vaccine Pass policy will come into effect on 31 May 2022. Under Phase Three, three doses of a recognised vaccine will be required for those aged 12 or above who have received the second dose for more than six months. For those who have recovered from a COVID-19 infection, please refer to Question 14 of the FAQs on the School’s Vaccine Pass policy.
A set of more detailed FAQs has been developed to address concerns from persons requiring access to HKU and HKU SPACE premises. 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. For any other enquiries, please refer to the School website, Teacher Portal and Learner Portal, or contact our staff at Colleges, HKU SPACE Community College and enrolment counters at the School’s Learning Centres for advice.
Please stay safe and vigilant, and always make personal and group health your top priority.
