Reopenings: Lantau fitness centres, beaches, Tung Chung pool

The Tung Chung pool and library and local fitness centres have reopened as the city begins its return to normal.

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department last week announced the reopening of Tung Chung and 32 other local swimming pools across Hong Kong, starting Thursday.

It also has opened the Tung Chung library and sent lifeguards back to Pui O and Silvermine Bay beaches, allowing them to open for the first time since March.

However, the Mui Wo library and swimming pool remain shut, as are – officially – the popular Cheung Sha and Tong Fuk beaches, although both beaches have attracted weekend crowds the past month.

But most sports centres have reopened, including the Mui Wo and Tung Chung centres.

The Mui Wo gym is available daily at slightly shortened hours. From Tues-Fri it is opening from 9am to 10pm, with one-hour closure for cleaning at 1pm and 5pm. On Sunday it is open from 1-5pm and 6-10pm.

Pui O campsite has reopened at half capacity, but other Lantau campsites are still closed.

Picnickers can use Lantau barbecue sites but in groups of no more than eight, LCSD says.
