Advisory to helpers issued

During the Christmas and New Year holidays, the Labour Department will conduct mobile broadcasts at the places where foreign domestic helpers assemble to call upon them to comply with the anti-epidemic regulations.    According to the Prevention & Control of Disease (Prohibition on Group Gathering) Regulation and the Prevention & Control of Disease (Wearing of Mask) Regulation, taking part in a prohibited gathering of more than four people in public places or failing to wear a mask may result in a fine of $5,000.   Interdepartmental operations will be mounted from December 25 to 26 and January 1 to 2 at Central, Tamar Park in Admiralty, Victoria Park in Causeway Bay, the footbridge near Fa Yuen Street in Mong Kok and Lai Chi Kok Park.   Enforcement actions will be taken against those who repeatedly refuse to abide by the regulations despite reminders.     For enquiries, contact the Labour Department by calling 2157 9537, by email or through the online form on the dedicated portal.
