The Education Bureau announces the resumption of face-to-face classes in stages

In view of the then epidemic situation of the Coronavirus Disease 2019
(COVID-19), the Education Bureau (EDB) announced in early August that all schools
in Hong Kong should suspend all face-to-face teaching activities upon the
commencement of the new school year. During the period, schools should help
students learn at home through various modes of teaching. As the epidemic has shown
signs of subsiding recently, and having regard to the health experts’ advice, we have the
basis for schools to prepare for the resumption of face-to-face classes in two phases in
the second half of September. Face-to-face classes will be conducted on a half-day
basis in order to reduce the risk of infection. For the schedule of schools to resume face-to-face classes,
the details are set out at Annex.
