Hi, I’m currently studying in an online learning postgraduate course. I have a workshop to attend on campus (UK) for 19-20 March. I currently live in Hong Kong and would like to know what is the recommendation for students visiting campus, whether a 14-day quarantine is required (regardless if symptomatic or not)?

Hi Kenny, thanks for your message. We’re advising people to follow the latest advice from the UK Department for Health which states that if you have travelled to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau and are experiencing cough or fever or shortness of breath, please stay indoors and call NHS 111, even if symptoms are mild.

In addition, Public Health England advises that if you have returned specifically from Wuhan, please stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with other flu viruses and contact NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the city. Please follow this advice even if you do not have symptoms of the virus. If you develop a fever, difficulty breathing or a cough, you should continue to follow the advice above. Please do not leave your home until you been given advice by a clinician.

Thanks, I hope that helps.
