DH's Lam Tin Maternal and Child Health Centre closed for disinfection tomorrow
     The Department of Health (DH) today (March 12) said that its Lam Tin Maternal and Child Health Centre (MCHC) learnt that a preliminary confirmed COVID-19 patient had earlier visited the MCHC. The MCHC will be closed for thorough cleaning and disinfection tomorrow (March 13). Staff will contact affected clients to reschedule their service appointments.
    ​The patient visited the Lam Tin MCHC on March 5, 8 and 10 and had a mask on throughout the visits. The DH's Centre for Health Protection has initiated an epidemiological investigation on the case and relevant contact tracing is ongoing.
     In view of the current epidemic situation, MCHCs have stepped up infection control measures, including temperature screening before clinic entry and limiting the number of accompanying carers. At present, all MCHC staff members are wearing masks and face shields at work and practising hand hygiene at all times. The DH is highly concerned about the COVID-19 situation and has reminded all staff again to maintain personal hygiene and be vigilant at all times. If feeling unwell, they should seek medical attention immediately.
