Latest opening arrangements for AMO venues The Antiquities and Monuments Office (AMO) announced today (May 26) that Wun Yiu Exhibition at Sheung Wun Yiu Village in Tai Po, Fong Yuen Study Hall on Ma Wan, the Information Centre of Tung Chung Fort on Lantau Island and the Information Centre of Tung Lung Fort on Tung Lung Chau in Sai Kung will be reopened on June 1 (Monday). The interactive exhibits at the above venues will be reopened with enhanced cleaning and disinfection while all public events will remain suspended until further notice.
The AMO has already reopened the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui, Ping Shan Tang Clan Gallery cum Heritage Trail Visitors Centre in Yuen Long, Tai Fu Tai in San Tin, Old House of Wong Uk Village in Sha Tin, Fortified Structure in Ha Pak Nai and No. 10 San Wai in Wong Chuk Hang (only open on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays) on May 6.
The AMO appeals to visitors to comply with the Prevention and Control of Disease (Prohibition on Group Gathering) Regulation (Cap 599G) on the prohibition of group gatherings of more than the number of people as stipulated by the law. It adopts special measures at the venues reopened, including conducting temperature checks for all visitors before entering the venues, advising visitors to wear their own masks before admission and limiting the number of visitors for each venue. As well, cleaning and disinfection measures at all the venues reopened have been stepped up to minimise the risk of infection.
The AMO will continue to monitor the situation closely and review the arrangements in a timely manner.
For enquiries, please call the AMO on 2208 4400.
