Lion Rock Park temporarily closed
     Upon the advice of the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) announced today (August 17) that the Lion Rock Park in Wong Tai Sin District is temporarily closed for a month with effect from today. The re-opening will be subject to further monitoring and review of the situation by relevant departments. 

     As patients of several confirmed local cases of dengue fever had been to Lion Rock Park before onset, the CHP considered the park as one of the possible major sources of infection and therefore advised temporary closure of the park to prevent the spread of infection. The LCSD, in collaboration with relevant government departments, will conduct thorough cleaning and mosquito control operations in the park and its vicinity during the closure period.
