Service suspension of Ping Shan Tin Shui Wai Public Library tomorrow
     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) today (June 13) said that, since a person tested positive with N501Y mutant strain had visited the Ping Shan Tin Shui Wai Public Library (PSTSWPL), the Government has published a notice in the Gazette requesting any person who had been to the PSTSWPL for more than one hour at any time during the period from 9am to 2pm on June 1 to undergo additional testing by tomorrow (June 14). PSTSWPL will therefore be closed tomorrow to tie in with the compulsory testing of relevant staff who are required to obtain a negative test result before resuming duties.

     Thorough cleaning and sterilisation has already been conducted at the PSTSWPL. Enhanced measures including cleaning and disinfection have also been conducted in the public libraries. Visitors to facilities of the public libraries are required to scan the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code or register their name, contact number and the date and time of entry. They will also subject to temperature checks before admission, as well as needing to use hand sanitiser and wear their own masks. Children under 12 will only be allowed to enter public libraries when accompanied by an adult. The LCSD is highly concerned about the COVID-19 epidemic and will continue to maintain close liaison with the Centre for Health Protection. Staff are reminded to pay attention to personal hygiene and to stay vigilant. They should seek medical advice immediately if feeling unwell.
