HONG KONG - The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department reminds poultry retailers and the public that the next rest day falls on December 27.

Operators of market stalls and fresh provision shops selling live poultry must suspend business on the rest day to carry out thorough cleaning and disinfection.

All poultry retailers should observe the rest-day conditions and ensure all live poultry remaining in their stalls or shops are slaughtered before the rest day.

The department will inspect the poultry outlets on the day. Failure to comply with the rest-day conditions will lead to immediate cancellation of shop licences or termination of market stall tenancies.
