HK shuts secondary schools

China’s Hong Kong will suspend face-to-face teaching in secondary schools from Monday until after the Lunar New Year, authorities said, because of a rising number of coronavirus infections in several schools in the special administrative region.

The government halted classes in primary schools and kindergartens early this month, and imposed curbs, such as a ban on restaurant dining after 6pm and the closure of venues such as gyms, cinemas and beauty salons.

Schools will stay shut until February 7, after the New Year holidays, the government said yesterday. While sixth formers preparing for exams may have some face-to-face classes, all other levels must cancel or postpone exams and activities.

The stringent measures return the Asian financial hub to the situation that existed after it first took such steps in 2020.
