HKIA Takes Precautionary Measures Against COVID-19 Outbreak (Updated on 27 Apr 2020)
Local, Announcement

In view of the latest rapid development of COVID-19 outbreak, and to tie in with the Government strategy to fight the disease, the HKIA Secretariat adopts the flexible arrangement of allowing staff to work at home for reducing social contacts.  The arrangement is to be extended to 2 May 2020.  The HKIA Office remains open at its normal office hours to provide Members with essential and basic services.  However, some services may need to be handled by phone or email.  We plead for Members’ kind consideration. The arrangement will be reviewed in accordance with the outbreak development.

The HKIA has taken the following strengthened measures, taking into consideration the guidelines of the Hong Kong Government and the operational needs of the Institute.  The Institute will closely monitor the development of the outbreak for timely review of our measures.

 

  • Except for important affairs of the Institute that must be handled face-to-face, all meetings, lectures, study tours and other activities should be cancelled as far as possible, or replaced by alternatives such as live webcast, online conferences, circulation by email, etc. until further notice.
     
  • The Institute has arranged daily cleaning and disinfection of the HKIA Office. Staff members are provided with protective materials such as surgical masks and hand sanitizer. Staff are also reminded to pay attention to personal hygiene so as to work together to reduce the risk of virus spread.
     
  • HKIA urges Members to closely monitor the development of the outbreak for taking timely and proper precautionary measures. For details, please refer to:
