Latest arrangements on services of Hong Kong Public Libraries

To tie in with the Government’s latest anti-epidemic measures, members of the public must comply with the requirements of the Vaccine Pass and are required to scan the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code or register their names, contact number and the date and time of the visit before admission for necessary contact tracing if a confirmed case is found. Please refer to the Details.

Calculation of overdue fines has been resumed from 5 May for late return of library items. Readers are advised to renew their borrowed items on time or return the overdue items as soon as possible in order not to incur overdue fines.

Latest arrangements on services of Hong Kong Public Libraries


12.08.2022

In the interest of public health, to avoid people gathering and to foster social distancing, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will continue to adopt special measures at the library facilities. The number of seats and computer facilities is reduced to maintain social distancing. Measures include limiting the number of people entering the libraries. Members of the public need to use hand sanitiser and will be subject to body temperature checks before admission. They also need to wear their own masks in the libraries. The libraries will strengthen the cleaning and disinfection of the facilities in the libraries, in order to ensure the normal operation of the ventilation system and maintain indoor air circulation.
 

"LeaveHomeSafe" QR codes are displayed at entrance of libraries and SSR for patrons to scan and record their visit. Except for exempted persons, all persons are required to use the "LeaveHomeSafe" mobile application (the App) to scan the venue QR code before they are allowed to enter the libraries and SSR. Persons who are aged below 12 or aged 65 or above, and those with disabilities that render use of the App difficult will be exempted from the requirement of using the App when they enter the libraries and SSR. Exemptions will also be granted to individual persons depending on actual circumstances. All exempted persons are required to register their names, contact number and the date and time of the visit. We also encourage the exempted persons to use the App as far as possible to save time (Details). In accordance with the Prevention and Control of Disease (Vaccine Pass) Regulation (Cap. 599L) and relevant requirements of administrative instructions, all persons entering or remaining in the libraries and their SSR must comply with the requirements of the Vaccine Pass pertinent to premises subject to active checking of Vaccine Pass. Details on the Vaccine Pass requirements can be found at https://www.coronavirus.gov.hk/eng/vaccine-pass.html.

The LCSD will pay close attention to the latest development of the pandemic and review or revise the above reopening arrangements in due course, and adjust relevant preventive measures as and when necessary.
