The Antiquities and Monuments Office (AMO) announced today (April 1) that Tai Fu Tai in San Tin, Yuen Long; the Fortified Structure in Ha Pak Nai, Yuen Long; the Old House of Wong Uk Village in Sha Tin; the Wun Yiu Exhibition at Sheung Wun Yiu Village in Tai Po; the Fong Yuen Study Hall on Ma Wan; No. 10 San Wai in Wong Chuk Hang (only opens on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays); and the Information Centres of Tung Chung Fort on Lantau Island and Tung Lung Fort on Tung Lung Chau in Sai Kung will be reopened tomorrow (April 2). The operation of all interactive exhibits and public events except online talks at these venues will remain suspended.
The viewing platform of Tung Lung Fort on Tung Lung Chau in Sai Kung is closed until further notice due to maintenance works in progress.
Users of the venues are required to scan the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code or register their names, contact number and the time of the visit before entering for necessary contact tracing if a confirmed case is found. Members of the public who opt to register their personal information at the site are reminded to arrive earlier to avoid delaying their visits as a longer time is required for such registration.
The AMO reminds visitors that group gatherings of more than the number of people as stipulated by the law will not be allowed. It will also adopt special measures for the venues, including suspending all interactive exhibits; limiting the number of visitors at each venue; requesting all visitors to undergo temperature checks, use hand sanitiser and put on their own masks before entering the venues; and requiring children aged under 12 to be accompanied by an adult for admission. Cleaning and disinfection measures will be stepped up at the above venues to minimise the risk of infection.
For enquiries, please call the AMO on 2208 4400.
