Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip visits the Cultural Centre to learn about its anti-epidemic measures.

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip visited the Cultural Centre and the Museum of Art today to learn about the implementation of anti-epidemic measures by the Leisure & Cultural Services Department.


Mr Nip first toured the Grand Theatre and the Concert Hall of the Cultural Centre.


The centre’s anti-epidemic measures include restricting audience numbers and users in all performance venues, requiring all visitors to wear masks and undergo body temperature checks before admission, and stepping-up disinfection and cleaning work after each performance or event.


Mr Nip said he was pleased to know that a large-scale cleaning exercise and refurbishment work were carried out in the centre during its closure earlier. For instance, the ceiling and acoustic panels of the Concert Hall have been cleaned up and sensor-activated hand-washing and flushing facilities have been installed in toilets.


Mr Nip then proceeded to the exhibition galleries of the museum.


Upon the resumption of normal opening hours, apart from limiting the flow of visitors and conducting regular disinfection of the museum’s public areas, anti-microbial coating on interactive exhibits has been applied to provide long-lasting protection and surface disinfection against microbial contamination.


Given the volatility of COVID-19, Mr Nip reminded colleagues to stay vigilant and prepared for the changing circumstances in combating the epidemic to protect the public and enable them to enjoy the leisure and cultural facilities in a safe manner.
