Changing rooms and shower facilities will be reopened tomorrow along with the leisure facilities of the Leisure & Cultural Services Department.
Secretary for Home Affairs Caspar Tsui made the announcement after attending a radio programme this morning, noting that changes to shower facilities will be implemented.
The LCSD had earlier announced that some of its leisure venues would be reopened in phases this month in light of the COVID-19 situation. Facilities scheduled to reopen Monday include indoor ones.
“Tomorrow, I think, is a good time to also relax and introduce new arrangements in the changing rooms and shower facilities.
“It will be similar to (the new measures) adopted by the fitness centres and some of the clubs in the past few days as well.”
Mr Tsui said detailed arrangements will be released later to help reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
“Basically, it’s likely that we will separate some shower facilities so that (people) will not stand too close to each other.
“And of course, the normal procedure of checking (body) temperature will be in place as well.”
