LCSD reminds members of the public to wear mask and not to litter during festive season

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) reminds members of the public to observe the regulation on wearing masks at all times while celebrating the New Year at the department’s venues tonight (December 31). Offenders are liable to prosecution.

Members of the public should also keep places clean and put rubbish in rubbish bins. Anyone not disposing of rubbish properly is liable to a fixed penalty of $1,500.

Please note that crowd management measures will be implemented at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza area, Salisbury Garden and the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade. Venues will step up patrols, and the LCSD appeals to members of the public to follow the regulation on mask-wearing requirement in public places and to keep places clean. Enforcement action will be taken against offenders. People at these venues should follow the instructions of the duty personnel and mind their safety.
