Members of the public inevitably feel exhausted both physically and mentally as the pandemic continues. Maintaining physical and mental health is, therefore, of paramount importance. In view of this, Webinars of the Hong Kong Games - " The New Normal of Sports and Wellness Series" are launched to disseminate to the public the messages of exercise and health. Besides, they are also encouraged to actively participate in the inter-district sports competitions and community participation programmes of the 8th Hong Kong Games.
