The following is issued on behalf of the Hong Kong Housing Authority:
     The Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) announced today (February 18) that the HA will reopen more recreational facilities at its public housing estates starting from tomorrow (February 19).
     "Facilities to be reopened tomorrow include soccer pitches, basketball courts, volleyball courts and chess tables in public housing estates. Applications for use of assembly/multipurpose halls and multipurpose activity rooms by organisations will commence from February 22," a spokesman for the HA said.
    The spokesman reminded members of the public to scan the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code before using the facilities of the HA and they should also wear masks and maintain social distancing. The number of people in group gatherings should not be more than that as stipulated by the law.
     "We will step up cleaning of the reopened facilities. Estate staff will also check the usage of the facilities from time to time. When irregularities are found, appropriate action will be taken."
     Children's play facilities of the HA will continue to be closed until further notice.
