HONG KONG (BLOOMBERG) – Hong Kong is sending civil servants back to work-from-home arrangements as the government steps up efforts to contain the latest wave of coronavirus infections in the Asian financial hub, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said on Monday (Nov 30).
The move, which Mrs Lam urged private sector employers to follow, is the most far-reaching since another flare-up of infection started earlier this month and signals that authorities’ concern that the current outbreak will escalate in scale.
Many multinational companies refer to what civil servants are doing to determine their own guidelines about employees coming to the office.
