Alfred Sit visits health code posts

Secretary for Innovation & Technology Alfred Sit today visited mobile support stations set up at Mass Transit Railway stations to ascertain how government outreach teams are assisting citizens to apply for the Hong Kong Health Code.   The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) has arranged such teams at various MTR stations daily from 9am to 6pm to help those in need of registering for a Hong Kong Health Code account as well as downloading or updating the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app.   Mr Sit toured the mobile support stations at the MTR stations in Tai Po Market, Ngau Tau Kok and North Point where he sought people's views on the outreach service.   "We understand some members of the public are not very familiar with digital technologies and may need support from others and learn the skills,” Mr Sit said.   “Various bureaus and departments are working on it and have solicited community support to foster the Hong Kong spirit of mutual care and assistance in fighting the virus together," he added.   The Home Affairs Bureau had earlier invited the OGCIO to hold briefings for district and clansman associations in addition to six charity groups on the operation of the Hong Kong Health Code system.   The Home Affairs Department also distributed publicity leaflets to encourage citizens to register for a Hong Kong Health Code account.   The other MTR stations in which mobile support stations have been established are Siu Hong, Tung Chung, Tsing Yi, Kwai Fong, Kai Tak, Tiu Keng Leng and Wong Chuk Hang.   The number of mobile support stations will be increased to cover 25 MTR stations in the next phase, with 15 starting services in early January.   They will be set up at the MTR stations in Long Ping, Sheung Shui, Wu Kai Sha, Tai Wai, Tsuen Wan West, Nam Cheong, Hung Hom, Kowloon, Prince Edward, Kowloon Tong, Wong Tai Sin, Ho Man Tin, Sai Ying Pun, Wan Chai and Shau Kei Wan.
