Latest arrangements for EMSD public services
     In response to the arrangement of a phased resumption of public services by the Government, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) announced today (April 29) that the services of the Registration and Permit Office (the Office) at its Kowloon Bay headquarters will resume on May 4. The Office will open from 9am to 5.15pm from Monday to Friday.
     The EMSD will continue to maintain a high degree of vigilance and adopt necessary precautionary measures, including implementing crowd control measures at the Office which may lead to longer waiting times so as to reduce social contacts and the risk of the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the community. The EMSD encourages applicants to use alternative means to submit their applications, with cheques for payment, including by post (to 3 Kai Shing Street, Kowloon Bay) or through the drop-in box located at the G/F lobby of the EMSD headquarters during office hours. Submitted applications will be processed as soon as practicable and applicants will be notified of the results by phone or post.
     The EMSD Gallery will also be reopened on May 4. However, all interactive exhibits will continue to be suspended. To avoid overcrowding and reduce social contacts, special arrangements and precautionary measures will be implemented, including admission limits to avoid overcrowding. All visitors are requested to wear their own face masks and have their body temperatures checked at the entrance, and children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
     For enquiries, please contact the EMSD on 2333 3762.
