Distribution of CuMask+™
To fight the virus together with Hong Kong residents, the Innovation and Technology Bureau and the Innovation and Technology Commission have arranged the distribution of reusable CuMask+TM to Hong Kong residents. The online registration period for CuMask+TM has ended. Eligible Hong Kong residents who have not obtained CuMask+TM before may collect a mask each in person at designated collection points in due course. The details and dates for in-person collection will be announced shortly. You can visit https://www.qmask.gov.hk/ for the details of the programme and the frequently asked questions.
Points to note:
- Infants have weaker breathes. Wearing a mask may pose a risk of suffocation. Therefore, infants are not recommended to wear masks and no mask will be provided to infants.
- Students in primary schools and kindergartens will receive child and child (small) size CuMask+™ later through the schools they are studying in. Collection in person is not required. The Government has also reserved for students to be enrolled in kindergartens for the next school year a sufficient number of CuMask+™, which will be distributed by the schools they will study in.
- To support the disadvantaged, the Government has delivered extra masks to residential care homes, as well as non-government organisations providing services for the elderly, homeless and persons with disabilities for them to give to the needy. The service users of these residential care homes and organisations can collect a mask in person. Details will be announced later.
