Early closure of some LCSD facilities today
     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) announced today (November 17) that due to special circumstances which happened nearby, Tsim Sha Tsui Public Library, the Hong Kong Museum of History and the Hong Kong Science Museum in Yau Tsim Mong District are closed to ensure the safety of venue users and staff members. The department will closely monitor the situation and announce venue arrangements in a timely manner.
     Tennis courts of Shek Kip Mei Park in Sham Shui Po District which were closed earlier are reopened at 3pm.
     Also taking into consideration transportation service disruptions and other circumstances which may happen, all LCSD land-based leisure facilities (except the Islands District) will be closed at 9pm today and all public swimming pools including Tung Chung Swimming Pool in the Islands District will be closed by the end of the second sessional break for swimming pools. Other land-based leisure facilities in the Islands District will be closed at 8pm.
     Apart from Yau Ma Tei Theatre in Yau Tsim Mong District to be closed at 6pm, other performance venues will be closed after completion of events. All libraries and museums will stay open until normal closing hours.
     Subject to the situation, more cultural and leisure facilities in the same districts and any other district which may be affected will also be closed early and at short notice to ensure the safety of venue users. Members of the public who plan to go to those venues are advised to visit the LCSD website (www.lcsd.gov.hk/en/index.html) or contact 1823 in advance.
