A small step towards ‘normal’
The Covid-19 cases in Hong Kong have really dropped this week – low single figures a day. The Faculty has quietly started a small amount of face-to-face teaching. It is our view that science graduates in some subjects need to be properly trained in some skills that can only be taught in person. So while abiding by all the social distancing rules and taking steps to minimise the risk to health we have restarted some practical teaching. Next week the university has also moved back to a basic level of service, which basically means 50% staffing levels. Let’s hope this can continue.
