We anticipate at this stage that classes of all schools, including international schools and kindergartens, which used to start their new school year early, would not commence earlier than August 17. The final commencement date will depend on the development of the epidemic. We have gained some practical experience from the class resumption arrangement from May to June this year, such as resumption by phases and levels, half-day schooling, as well as the various crowd control and health protection measures. We will continue to consider the commencement of the new school year along these directions.

Secretary for Education on early commencement of school holiday

As we all know, the COVID will likely be with us for a period of time. We have to balance the safety of the students as well as the educational needs of the students. In the past two days we did observe that there is another surge of confirmed local cases. And also it is now very close to the planned summer vacation anyway – we are talking about seven to 10 days. So we think that for the general good of the community as well as the health of the students, we think that we can advance the commencement of the summer vacation to next Monday, 20 July.

NEW Secretary for Education on early commencement of school holiday

As we all know, the COVID will likely be with us for a period of time. We have to balance the safety of the students as well as the educational needs of the students. In the past two days we did observe that there is another surge of confirmed local cases. And also it is now very close to the planned summer vacation anyway – we are talking about seven to 10 days. So we think that for the general good of the community as well as the health of the students, we think that we can advance the commencement of the summer vacation to next Monday.

Important Message about Social Distancing from HKSAR Information Service Department

Hong Kong has done well to contain the spread of the virus and we remain vigilant and responsible global citizens to keep it that way.

Yet, the rapid spread of the virus globally has recently led to a spike in imported cases in Hong Kong, which has the potential to create more locally transmitted cases in Hong Kong. The recent compulsory quarantine for all international returnees is an important pubic health measure to quickly identity any imported cases and to curtail local transmissions.

Another way to keep the virus in check is to continue to display the high levels of civic mindedness that have been a hallmark of Hong Kong’s response so far – namely, social distancing. Avoiding crowds and large gatherings, working from home, washing hands frequently, and wearing a mask in crowded places such as the MTR or on a bus all have an impact on the spread of the virus.

Here are publicity videos on “Social Distancing“, “Return to Work” and “Working Together to Fight the Virus.”

We would welcome and encourage you to share widely with your constituencies in Hong Kong to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep as all Hong Kong residents safe and healthy.

Message from The Consulate General of Canada in Hong Kong & Macao

If you are a Canadian citizen impacted by COVID-19 who plans to return home and who has no other source of funds, you may be eligible for the Emergency Loan Program.
