During the COVID-19 pandemic, our team is working a hybrid mix of remotely and in-person. Please contact us at [email protected] For urgent matters call/Whatsapp +852 5981 3754 (English/Tagalog) OR +852 5648 0990 (Bahasa Indonesia).
 

As the Covid-19 situation continues to improve in Hong Kong, we’re pleased to be able to offer in-person workshops again, as well as to continue to offer online sessions for those who prefer them. 

Face-to-face workshops

In order to ensure a safe learning environment for all, we expect all participants at our in-person sessions to follow the rules below.

  • Please book in advance, as we cannot accept walk-in attendees. Each workshop will have a maximum number of people and Enrich will also strictly monitor attendance at each workshop, including name and contact details of participants. 
  • We will follow the government's vaccination protocols. Make sure you have received 3 doses of vaccination (unless you have a valid exemption – see here if unsure) and that this is shown on your Leave Home Safe app.
  • Your Leave Home Safe app QR Code must show Blue, and not Red or Amber and you will need to show this on entry. 
  • You will be asked to have your temperature taken, hands sanitised and wear a mask before entering.
  • 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.
  • You will be sent a Health Declaration and will need to complete this the day of your session and show this on entry. 
  • We are sorry that you will not be able to attend in-person if any of the below applies. Please contact us if this affects you so that we can arrange for you to be booked into an alternative session. 
  1. Your Leave Home Safe is showing as Red or Amber. 
  2. You are not compliant with the Vaccine Pass (i.e. three doses of the Covid-19 vaccine (unless you had your 2nd dose within 6 months OR have a valid Recovery Certificate OR valid Medical Exemption)). You should be able to show this on the Leave Home Safe app if asked as it will show a Blue QR Code (please contact us in advance if you will need to show us on paper). 
  3. You or a member of your household under Mandatory Home Quarantine.
  4. You arrived into Hong Kong in the last seven days.

  8.  You have experienced such symptoms (see above) in the last 7 days.
  9.  You have experienced such symptoms in the last 7-14 days, and have not since tested negative in the last week.

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 outside your home. 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.
