Attention TV/radio announcers:
Please broadcast the following announcement as soon as possible and repeat it at suitable intervals:
The Leisure and Cultural Services Department says the outdoor main pool at the Lai Chi Kok Park Swimming Pool has been temporarily closed for cleaning and superchlorination following the discovery of a small amount of faeces in the pool.
As the outdoor main pool is the only pool open at the Lai Chi Kok Park Swimming Pool, the venue is now temporarily closed.
It will reopen at 2pm today (November 15).
The department appeals to swimmers to be considerate and to keep our swimming pools clean. They are advised not to swim after a full meal and should use the toilet facilities if necessary before swimming.
