No need to return to offices for government employees residing in Kwai Chung Estate
     In view of the latest development of the epidemic, the Government has informed all bureaux and departments (B/Ds) today (January 22) that all government employees residing in Kwai Chung Estate do not need to return to their offices but to stay at home and avoid going out for the time being until receiving further notice from their respective B/Ds.
     The Secretary for the Civil Service, Mr Patrick Nip, appealed to employers to make similar arrangements for their staff where practicable in the fight against the epidemic.
     He said that to cater for the implementation of various epidemic prevention measures, taking into consideration the scale and manpower requirement of individual operations, the Government will provide cross-departmental support by making suitable deployment of staff from B/Ds.
     The Civil Service Bureau has earlier informed B/Ds that on the premise of maintaining public services, B/Ds can make appropriate manpower arrangements according to their own circumstances so as to reduce people flow in offices.
