Enterprise backs outreach jab service

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip visited AIA Hong Kong & Macau today to view the administering of the BioNTech vaccine to about 400 people as arranged by the Government's outreach vaccination service.   Mr Nip said it is encouraging that various enterprises have joined the Government in promoting the Early Vaccination for All campaign and called on their employees to receive vaccination.   He hopes that vaccinated citizens will also encourage their family members and friends to get the jab to help build an immune barrier in Hong Kong.   The outreach vaccination programme has received enthusiastic support since its launch, with vaccination services provided for the Hong Kong Sports Institute, global professional services enterprises, property developers, financial institutions and more. http://dlvr.it/S4y8xb

Jordan food premises checked

The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department and Police took stringent enforcement action in the vicinity of Wai Ching Street in Jordan last night.   They inspected 13 catering premises, including six which were subjects of complaints. All the premises were not in operation.   The department said according to the current directions issued by the Secretary for Food & Health in relation to catering businesses under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Requirements and Directions) (Business & Premises) Regulation (Cap 599F), catering business operators must strictly comply with a series of requirements and restrictions.   Under the requirements and restrictions, a person responsible for carrying on a catering business must cease selling or supplying food or drink for consumption on the business premises from 6pm to 4.59am of the subsequent day. Additionally, no more than two people may be seated together at one table within any catering premises.   The poster containing the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code must also be displayed at the entrance of the premises or at a conspicuous location.   If a person responsible for carrying on a catering business or scheduled premises contravenes the regulations, they face a maximum fine of $50,000 and six months' imprisonment.   The department said it will continue to step up enforcement action and publicity efforts and conduct joint operations with Police to ensure compliance with relevant regulations.
