     In view of the latest epidemic situation and special work arrangements for Government employees, a spokesman for the Education Bureau (EDB) announced today (November 30) that all Regional Education Offices and the Joint Office for Kindergartens and Child Care Centres will provide only emergency services and essential public services ‪from Wednesday‬ (December 2‬). The measure will be implemented tentatively for two weeks ‪until December 15.‬

     The spokesman reminded that members of the public who need these services should contact the service units concerned by phone in advance.

     As for appointments already made for the audiological services at the Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre, officers of the EDB will contact the parents concerned for appropriate arrangements.

     The School Places Allocation Section will continue to provide limited hotline services to handle enquiries and appointments.
