In response to a photo circulating on the Internet and in messaging groups with a rumour that "the Education Bureau (EDB) is considering suspending all face-to-face classes before Wednesday", a spokesman for the EDB reiterated today (January 8) that the current arrangements for face-to-face classes will continue at this stage. Schools will strictly abide by the anti-epidemic measures in accordance with the guidelines issued by the EDB.
The EDB will continue to monitor the development of the epidemic, take into account the views of health experts and review the anti-epidemic measures and class arrangements in a timely manner. As usual, new arrangements, if any, will be announced as soon as possible.
The EDB called on all stakeholders to take preventive measures against the epidemic, avoid unnecessary gatherings, and get vaccinated to strengthen protection in the fight against the epidemic.
