In view of the latest situation of COVID-19, more leisure and cultural venues of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) reopened gradually from April 1 (Thursday).
Leisure facilities reopened include outdoor children's play facilities (reopen from April 1), some public swimming pools and gazetted beaches (reopen from April 2). Lifeguard services will be provided at some gazetted beaches. Please refer to https://www.lcsd.gov.hk/en/beach/swim-intro.html for details.
For cultural venues, the limit on the number of audience members/users in each facility of the LCSD performance venues relaxed on April 1, with seating capacity to be increased to 75 per cent of the original. Consecutive seats will be limited to four. All museums (except the Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence) partially reopened their exhibition facilities and public programmes from April 2. Admission quotas will be implemented to limit visitor flow. The Hong Kong Science Museum and the Hong Kong Space Museum will apply admission by sessions. Some interactive exhibits will remain suspended. The Resource Centre and box office of the Hong Kong Film Archive will also be reopened. All 32 small libraries reopened from April 3 and will implement special opening hours. The opening hours of the Hong Kong Central Library (HKCL) and six other major public libraries returned to normal on April 7.
