Hong Kong Geopark's work under the outbreak of COVID-19

Hong Kong Geopark's work under the outbreak of COVID-19

To reduce the risk of community transmission of COVID-19, a series of precautionary measures have been taken by all Hong Kong Geopark visitor centres (including geo-heritage centres and story rooms), including:

1) Stepping up cleaning and disinfection work
2) Providing contact-less thermometer and sanitizing hand rubs
3) Requesting all staff and visitors to wear masks inside the visitor centre
4) Proactively asking visitors if they have
i) any signs or symptoms of unwellness;
ii) any close contact with suspected or confirmed cases;
iii) visited any place with active community transmission in the last 14 days.

The Hong Kong Geopark team will continue to check on the well-being and need of local geopark communities, and to providing them with help and supplies if necessary.

While the proposed "Story Master" scheme and Geopark school activities for this school year will be cancelled, our efforts will concentrate on safeguarding geopark visitors and communities in these critical moments.
