Latest opening arrangements for AMO venues
     The Antiquities and Monuments Office (AMO) announced today (September 9) that some venues will be reopened on September 14 (Monday).
     Venues to be reopened include the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui, the Ping Shan Tang Clan Gallery cum Heritage Trail Visitors Centre in Yuen Long, Tai Fu Tai in San Tin, the Fortified Structure in Ha Pak Nai, the Old House of Wong Uk Village in Sha Tin, the Wun Yiu Exhibition at Sheung Wun Yiu Village in Tai Po, the Fong Yuen Study Hall on Ma Wan, No. 10 San Wai in Wong Chuk Hang (only open on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays) and the Information Centre of Tung Lung Fort on Tung Lung Chau in Sai Kung.
     The Tung Chung Fort Information Centre on Lantau Island is closed until November this year due to the improvement and maintenance works being conducted. All public programmes, except online talks, will remain suspended until further notice.
     The AMO appeals to visitors to comply with the Prevention and Control of Disease (Prohibition on Group Gathering) Regulation (Cap 599G) on the prohibition of group gatherings of more than the number of people as stipulated by the law. It is adopting special measures for the venues to be reopened, including suspending all interactive exhibits; limiting the number of visitors at each venue; requesting all visitors to undergo temperature checks, use hand sanitiser and put on their own masks before entering the venues; and requiring children aged under 12 to be accompanied by an adult for admission. Furthermore, cleaning and disinfection measures will be stepped up at all of the above venues to minimise the risk of infection.
     The AMO will continue to monitor the situation closely and review the arrangements in a timely manner.
     For enquiries, please call the AMO on 2208 4400.
