Patrick Nip visits AXA

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip today visited AXA Hong Kong & Macau to view the administering of COVID-19 vaccines.   About 360 staff and agents of the enterprise will receive either a Sinovac or BioNTech vaccine during a two-day outreach vaccination service by the Government.   Mr Nip said the Government welcomes enterprises to join hands with it in promoting the Early Vaccination for All campaign and encourages their employees to support the vaccination programme to protect the health of themselves, colleagues and clients.   He also hoped that people who get vaccinated will encourage their families and friends to do the same as a way to help build an immune barrier in Hong Kong.   He called on the public to get vaccinated as early as possible, noting that the vaccination programme is already offering more quotas for people to make bookings, and same-day tickets for vaccinations will be distributed to seniors aged 70 or above starting tomorrow.   Elderly peop

Catering premises inspected

The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department said it took stringent enforcement actions relating to anti-epidemic regulations during the Easter holidays.   It stepped up inspections and conducted joint operations with Police in various districts on April 2 and 3.   A total of 92 catering premises were inspected during the joint operations, and 894 catering premises and 145 other premises were reviewed by the department on its own in the past two days.   It initiated procedures on prosecution against 10 catering business operators suspected of breaching the Prevention & Control of Disease (Requirements & Directions) (Business & Premises) Regulation.   Among them, three were related to failure to ensure that customers scan the LeaveHomeSafe QR code or register their names, contact numbers and the dates and times of their visits before they are allowed to enter the premises.   The remaining were related to the distance or partitions between tables, mask-wearing and failure to arrange for all staff to undergo a COVID-19 test every 14 days.   To minimise the transmission of COVID-19, the department strongly appealed to catering business operators to comply with the relevant regulations on prevention and control of disease.   It also reminded the public to exercise self-discipline and co-operate to fight the virus together.
