Abstract

A tragedy occurred recently in Hong Kong as the attack of COVID-19 rocked the whole society. This brief note intends to call for local and international discussions about difficult cases caused by the infection control measures. Current social distancing practice requires social work practitioners to detect high-risk cases not only for those living alone but also for those living together, and to assess the risks to care. In addition, social workers should join forces with stakeholders’ associations to advocate suitable and sufficient service provision in order to enhance well-being of families of children with intellectual disabilities.
