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

On the rest day, operators of market stalls and fresh-provision shops must slaughter all live poultry remaining on their premises before noon, and suspend business in the afternoon and evening to carry out cleaning and disinfection.

All poultry retailers must strictly observe the rest-day conditions, and not remove any live poultry from their premises to avoid slaughtering them before the rest day starts.

Department staff will inspect the outlets on the rest day. Failure to comply with the conditions will lead to immediate cancellation of fresh-provision-shop licences or termination of market-stall tenancies.

Live poultry may be on sale Monday morning, but none will be sold from noon until the following morning.
