Residents' Safety and Health


A. Stringent Epidemic Measures

Stringent Epidemic Measures (the Measures) are now in place!

The Measures apply to all student residents of NTTIH and if visiting is permitted, all visitors (collectively, the Individuals). Non-compliance of the Measures poses a danger to the health or safety of other members of NTTIH. All the requirements below will be STRICTLY enforced. Disciplinary actions will be taken against non-complying individuals.

These Measures are subject to changes and all residents shall pay attention to any updates of the Measures that may be issued by the University from time to time. Residents are required to comply with the latest Measures.  

Hall Access Requirement

Starting from 10 January 2022, all Individuals accessing Halls and NTTIH must be fully vaccinated for 14 days or more before access OR be able to present a negative COVID-19 test result conducted by a Government approved testing laboratory within 7 days of (and including) the day of access .

Mask-wearing Requirement
All Individuals should wear mask at all times in the common areas of NTTIH, including but not limited to lifts, corridors and Common Room.  In non-common areas such as bedroom, wearing mask remains required when there is/are other parties present.

Residents who are found not wearing masks in NTTIH in the first instance will first be warned and their student numbers be taken down. Subsequent non-compliance will carry penalties including but not limited to suspension or in serious cases, termination of residence. In the case of visitors, they will be asked to leave NTTIH immediately.

All Individuals should carry their own masks.  Those residents who register at the G/F Reception to obtain a mask will be charged HK$1 per mask by cash.  Each resident can only get one mask from the Reception counter per day.  An Individual who does not wear a mask will be denied entry to NTTIH.

Group Gathering Restriction
Group gathering of more than 4 persons in public places is prohibited by law currently. There is also no visitation of NTTIH.  All measures are effective until further notice.

Hygiene Reminder
While cleaning services have been enhanced, you are reminded to pay attention to your personal hygiene, especially hand hygiene, and monitor your body condition at all times.  Health tips on personal hygiene is available at CHP website HERE.

As the COVID-19 situation is highly unpredictable, we should all be prepared that face-to-face teaching might be suspended on short notice due to an upsurge in confirmed cases in Hong Kong or an outbreak on the campus. Subject to the request / advice of the Government, NTTIH may be locked down or evacuated. Having said that, the NTTIH Management will try our best to minimize the interruptions to your stay under such unfortunate circumstances.

Your cooperation is crucial in maintaining the health of fellow residents. Let’s join hands to fight the virus!
