HAD to open temporary night heat shelters


     The Home Affairs Department will open 18 temporary night heat shelters tonight (June 25) for people in need of the service.


     The shelters will be open from 10.30pm until 8am tomorrow.


     In light of the implementation of mandatory use of the “LeaveHomeSafe” mobile application when entering government premises, all persons are required to use the app to scan the venue QR code before they are allowed to enter temporary night heat shelters, except for exempted persons (including persons who are aged below 12 or aged 65 or above, persons with disabilities that render use of the app difficult and persons without smartphones). All exempted persons are required to complete a prescribed form to register their personal particulars, contact phone number and the date and time of entry. The staff will verify the information provided.


     For further information, please call the department’s hotline before midnight on 2572 8427.
