EDB announces 14-day class suspension of PLK Celine Ho Yam Tong College

     The Education Bureau (EDB) announced today (June 22) that classes of PLK Celine Ho Yam Tong College in Wong Tai Sin would be suspended for 14 days from tomorrow (June 23) until July 6 (Monday).

     The decision was made after a joint assessment by the EDB and the Department of Health (DH) upon confirmation of a contracted case of human swine influenza at the school.  

     The DH was actively tracing students and teachers who might have been in contact with the infected student and will offer necessary medical surveillance for those in need.

     An EDB spokesman said the school would put in place contingency measures relating to class suspension and inform parents of the arrangements.

     During the class suspension period, the school would strengthen measures to ensure environmental hygiene, including thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the school premises, and arrange staff to be on duty to handle school affairs and answer parents' enquiries.

     The EDB will maintain close liaison with the DH and the school to offer timely support and advice.
