Public Service re-opens more facilities in Phase Two

17 June 2020

The Public Service will progressively re-open more public facilities and resume more of its physical services from 19 Jun 2020. 

2 Our primary consideration is to safeguard the health and wellbeing of the public and staff.  

3 In tandem with more activities resuming in Phase 2, we will re-open more public facilities, such as facilities in parks and public housing estates and sports facilities.  

4 Programmes and activities which require physical presence will resume in small groups with reduced density, intensity and duration. For example, Community Centres/Clubs will re-open and progressively resume courses and activities in a limited way, with activity groups kept small and safe distancing measures in place. The Judiciary may restrict the numbers of people present during open court hearings so as to comply with safe distancing measures.  

5 However, to minimise the risks of outbreaks of infection, other facilities that may involve large numbers of people interacting with one another in enclosed spaces, or for prolonged period of time, will not re-open for the time being. They may re-open later, and in a limited way. 

6 The Public Service will continue to recommend that citizens access public services and transactions through digital means as much as possible, although various service centres have been attending to citizens via appointments. The public officers who can work from home will continue to do so. Appropriate safe distancing and SafeEntry measures will be implemented at all public service workplaces and service centres, to facilitate swift contact tracing in the event of infections being detected. 

7 For more information on access to public services and relevant appointments, the public can check the relevant agencies’ websites. The list of activities and facilitates that will re-open is in Annex A.
