Kevin Yeung: schools to prepare for suspension of face-to-face classes

Hong Kong schools should prepare for suspending face-to-face classes as the number of Covid-19 cases with unidentifiable sources rebounds, the Education minister said. 

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung Yun-hung told a radio program this morning that his bureau has asked schools to stay vigilant in exercising anti-epidemic measures, avoid extra classes and after-class activities, and suspend large-scale activities such as sports day and swimming gala. 

But as the city records resurgence of infections with unknown sources, Yeung said schools should expect to temporarily switch to online lessons for several days if the pandemic situation worsens. 

The Carmel Divine Grace Foundation Secondary School in Tseung Kwan O has shut down its campus after a 17-year-old student tested positive with the virus, whom authorities believed to have caught the virus from his brother – a 19-year-old student of the Baptist University of Hong Kong.
