FEHD clarification
     In response to online rumours claiming that the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) provided expired face masks to cleansing workers and has not provided sufficient training to them, FEHD today (January 29) clarified that such rumours are unfounded.

     A spokesman for FEHD stressed that the department attaches importance to the safety of cleansing workers (including those of outsourced contractors). Face masks provided by the department and its public cleansing services contractors to their employees must comply with the related health and hygiene standards, and sufficient training should be provided to employees.
