EDB to resume more public services starting next week
     With targeted measures to reduce social contact and with infection preventive measures in place, offices of the Education Bureau (EDB) will progressively resume more public services from March 2 in an orderly manner.

     A spokesman for the EDB said today (February 29) that starting from Monday, all Regional Education Offices, the Joint Office for Kindergartens and Child Care Centres, the School Places Allocation Section, the Qualifications Framework Secretariat and other service units will provide public services as usual.

     In view of the needs of infection prevention and control, all offices will implement targeted measures to reduce social contact and control the number of visitors at any one time. Members of the public are encouraged to submit non-urgent enquiries or applications by telephone, post or other electronic means.

     In addition, the offices will, with regard to the actual circumstances, implement various infection control measures such as stepping up cleansing, checking the body temperature of visitors, providing alcohol hand sanitiser, placing sanitising mats, etc.

     The following public facilities of the EDB will remain temporarily closed to the public during the class suspension until further notice:

1. Hong Kong Teachers' Centre, Special Education Resource Centre, Central Resources Centre and Young Achievers' Gallery located at Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre; and
