    There are a number of "safe" street sleeper communities where people are known to drive hard drug addicts and thieves away and look out for each other (e.g. around the Cultural Centre) but there is no "social distancing" among street sleepers or Maccas sleepers. The government hostels would be worse than useless for social distancing ... not even any effective flow-through of air. As long as the weather holds, it is probably nealthier for people to sleep out ... just nearly impossible for the most arthriticky and gouty folks to get down onto the ground, let alone get up again in the morning

    Don't have a link but the government has mandated all private clubs to close their sports facilities e.g. gyms, swimming pools, tennis courts, etc. for the foreseeable future, effective today.

    So was that a Gov directive or voluntary? Seems like the latter. Banquets and group dinners will be a big concern at these places too.

    voluntary, but govt. only contacted the private clubs on government land, the ones that enjoy around $1000 per year rent

    Yup all the golf clubs now closed. HKGC (both sites), Clearwater Bay GC, DBGC, Kau Sai Chau GC (public one). Not sure about Shek O one.
