Infection Control Guidance (16th April 2021 updated)

Dear lecturers, visitors, students and staffs,

The COVID-19 attack to Hong Kong is still hazardous.  In order to safeguard the health of all AIBE members, and to be able to provide appropriate assistance to affected individuals, AIBE requests all visitors including staff and students to fill out a health declaration form (Please click this link https://forms.gle/bLyay8KyZ88dqFS3A for the questionnaire).

Regarding teaching and learning arrangement, online teaching arrangement via Zoom will be retained for most classes until further notice (except laboratory sessions, partial presentation and partial software hands-on workshops). You are recommended to follow and like the Facebook page of AIBE as this is the main on-line platform we communicate with each other when there is any lockdown or in difficult period.  Upon resumption of face-to-face teaching, plenty of hygiene and safety measures are carried out at AIBE – all visitors including staff and students are required to wear surgical face mask and measure body temperatures. Also, the campus and public area cleansing processes will be escalated.  Students are recommended to maintain appropriate social distances.

Should there be any queries, please contact: general@aibe-edu.org or Whatsapp 55085538.

Thank you for your kind attention.

Best wishes,

AIBE

Arrangements of Resumption of Face-to-Face classes:

AIBE has implemented the medical surveillance measures, all cases of suspected or confirmed cases of novel coronavirus infection should be reported to AIBE administration team. AIBE will make appropriate arrangements accordingly.

All visitors and members are advised to maintain good personal and environmental hygiene for protection, and take heed of the following preventive measures under the Emergency Response Level:

  1. All personnel must wear a surgical mask;
  2. Body temperature measurement will be taken (normal range of 36–37.5° C). If the body temperature is over 37.5° C, please seek medical advice at once.
  3. When anyone is having respiratory symptoms*, wear a surgical mask, refrain from work or attending class at school, avoid going to crowded places and seek medical advice promptly.
  4. Remind everyone to wash hands with liquid soap and water, and rub for at least 20 seconds. Then rinse with water and dry with a disposable paper towel. If hand washing facilities are not available, or when hands are not visibly soiled, performing hand hygiene with 70 to 80 per cent alcohol-based handrub is an effective alternative;
  5. Perform hand hygiene frequently, especially before touching the mouth, nose or eyes; after touching public installations such as handrails or door knobs; or when hands are contaminated by respiratory secretions after coughing or sneezing;
  6. Cover your mouth and nose with tissue paper when sneezing or coughing. Dispose of soiled tissues into a lidded rubbish bin, then wash hands thoroughly

AIBE continues to monitor the latest development and take appropriate prevention and control measures according to the CHP's recommendations.  Cleaning is stepped up throughout the campus. All staff will wear masks and perform hand hygiene frequently while on duty.

*Symptoms of respiratory disease: chills, rigor, runny nose, nasal stuffiness, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath etc.;

 

Maintain a clean and hygienic environment:

  •  Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces regularly with diluted household bleach (i.e. adding 1 part of household bleach to 99 parts of water), wait until dry and rinse with water.
  • If the facilities are contaminated, wash/wipe with diluted domestic bleach (mixing 1 part of bleach with 49 parts of water) immediately.
  • Maintain good indoor ventilation. Air-conditioning systems and exhaust fans should be cleaned and maintained regularly.
  • Maintain proper function of toilets, drains and pipes.Maintain drainage pipes properly and regularly (about once a week) pour about half a liter of water into each drain outlet (U-traps) to ensure environmental hygiene.
  • Handrails will be clean with diluted household bleach or 70 to 80 per cent alcohol-based liquid.
