The Government today announced that aside from staff providing emergency and essential public services as well as those involved in anti-epidemic efforts, all government employees will continue to work from home as far as possible until February 18.

As the local COVID-19 epidemic situation remains severe, the Government said it is necessary to continue to take measures to significantly reduce people flow and social contact in the community so as to curb the further spread of the virus.

It will closely monitor the epidemic situation and review the arrangements before February 18.

During the implementation of the special work arrangements, government departments will continue to provide emergency and essential public services.

The Government emphasised that its top priority now is to contain the fifth wave of the epidemic, adding that a large number of government employees have steadfastly dedicated themselves to the anti-epidemic efforts.

Government departments will continue to proactively mobilise their staff to support the anti-epidemic work in full force depending on the development of the epidemic situation and actual needs, it said.

To reduce the flow of people in government buildings and offices, citizens are encouraged to use the post, drop-in boxes or online channels to receive the services they need.

The Government also appealed to employers to allow their staff to work from home as far as possible.
