Housing Authority to reopen its outdoor recreational facilities
The following is issued on behalf of the Hong Kong Housing Authority:
     The Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) announced today (February 10) that the HA will reopen some of its outdoor recreational facilities starting from tomorrow (February 11).
     The reopening facilities include badminton courts, table tennis tables, tennis courts, gateball courts, fitness equipment and peddle walk trails.
     A spokesman for the HA reminded that the prohibition by the Government on group gatherings is in force and that unless exempted, group gatherings of more than the permitted number in public places are strictly prohibited. Members of the public are required to wear a mask when using these facilities.
     The spokesman urged the public to download the "LeaveHomeSafe" mobile app in advance and scan the QR code with the app installed within the facilities before using them to keep a habit of maintaining a precise record of their whereabouts, so as to help minimise the risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
     "We will step up the cleaning of our recreational facilities. Estate staff will also check the usage of the facilities from time to time," he said.
     "When irregularities are found, our staff will take appropriate action."
