As the Covid-19 situation continues to improve in Hong Kong, we’re pleased to open up our face-to-face workshops again from April onwards! In order to ensure a safe learning environment for all, we expect all participants to follow certain guidelines.
In order to ensure a safe environment, we appreciate our participants’ cooperation in following these precautions in face-to-face workshops:
- Each workshop will have a maximum of 8 people, including the trainer
- All participants, staff and visitors to our office must have their temperature taken, hands sanitised and wear a mask before entering.
- Enrich will also strictly monitor attendance using the mandatory attendance form at each workshop, including name and contact details of participants.
- Masks must be worn by participants and trainers for the entire duration of the workshop.
- We will no longer allow food to be consumed during the sessions. Participants will be given adequate breaks in between.
Participants can visit our programmes page to view the upcoming schedule. Those who have already registered for sessions will be notified of any changes.

How to protect yourself from Covid-19
Refer to the Hong Kong government’s protection guidelines (available in Tagalog, Bahasa Indonesia and other languages).
- Wear a face mask when outdoors. Ask your employer to provide you with a supply, especially if you are caring for children or elderly (ensure they wear a face mask too!).
- Avoid touching your face as much as possible to limit the potential spread of the virus from your hands to your nose or lips.
- Wash hands frequently, especially before touching your face, before eating, before feeding your ward, and after interacting with public transport or other people.
- Avoid crowded areas and public transport
- Keep hydrated constantly by drinking lots of water
- Eat healthily to ensure you are boosting your immune system.
- If you believe you may have come in contact with Covid-19, or if you are displaying flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, difficulty breathing), then keep calm and let your employer know. Wear a mask to prevent spreading it to others and go to your nearest public hospital.
- Pay close attention to new regulations on social distancing which are currently in place.
