Special arrangements for child care centre and special child care centre services

     In light of the latest situation of the COVID-19 epidemic and outbreak of upper respiratory tract infection at schools as well as the related arrangements for kindergartens, the Social Welfare Department (SWD) announced today (November 20) that all child care centres and special child care centres will continue to temporarily suspend services up to and including December 6.

     To minimise the chance of infection, the SWD advises members of the public not to take their children to child care centres or special child care centres. However, these centres will remain open to serve service users who have difficulty in taking care of their children. Service users in need may contact the centres or service units concerned in advance.

     For enquiries, please call the SWD hotline on 2343 2255.
