The HKSAR Government announced on 20 February that special work arrangement for government departments would continue in order to reduce the risk of the spread of the novel coronavirus in the community. Except for staff of the departments providing emergency services and essential public services, all other employees of the Government are not required to return to the offices but to work at home. The measure will continue tentatively until 1 March, and the Government will review the situation before then.
Following the above special work arrangement, the Innovation and Technology Commission will provide basic public services of a limited scale during the period concerned. Applications for various funding programmes can be submitted by post or electronically as usual. No submission in person should be made to our offices during this period though. Requests for quotation for purchasing Standards and Technical Enquiry and for visit to PSIB should be made via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. For general enquiries, please email to email@example.com. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
