The Leisure & Cultural Services Department today said it has stepped up patrols of public beaches to call on users to comply with regulations on the limit on the number of people in group gatherings and the mask-wearing requirement.
All gazetted beaches under its management were reopened on November 3.
The department, in collaboration with Police yesterday and today, gave out verbal advice more than 800 times during patrols.
It called on beach users to exercise self-discipline to comply with the gathering requirement stipulated by the law and wear masks at all times when in public places to reduce the chances of spreading the virus in the community.
Cleaning work at the reopened beach facilities has also been stepped up.
Barbecue sites within gazetted beaches will remain closed.
