People are warned to stay away from beaches that have been closed off as part of anti-virus measures

People in Hong Kong should stay away from temporarily closed beaches to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus disease.

The reminder was issued by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department today, Jul 24, ahead of a weekend when many people, including foreign domestic workers out on their day-off, go outdoors to get a whiff of fresh air.

The LCSD said people should stay away from the beaches to prevent crowds from gathering to reduce the chances of spreading the virus and avoid accidents.

A spokesman said the LCSD has suspended lifesaving services at the beaches because of the critical Covid-19 situation.

The spokesman said shower facilities, changing rooms and toilets at the beaches have also been closed to discourage people from going there despite the prohibition.

But as some beach areas may not be completely blocked off due to terrain constraints, the spokesman said the public should not enter them or attempt to damage the facilities there.
He said entering a closed beach is an offense and offenders may face prosecution. LCSD staff will step up patrols and take enforcement action if the advice is ignored.

Police assistance will be sought if there is any action involving criminal damage, he said.
