In the midst of the coronavirus epidemic, The New York Times interviewed Babysitter.hk to understand how the outbreak has affected nanny service demand.
Starting from January 2020, Babysitter.hk has already taken special measures to prevent health risk to our clients and nannies, while maintaining our reliable and trusted childcare services to all families in Hong Kong.
//Demand for nannies had already dropped by a third when the outbreak began, because many companies allowed parents to work from home, said Felix Choi, the director of Babysitter.hk, a nanny service. Now some expatriate families have left the city rather than wait out the closings…
“Over 30 percent of our client base is Western expat families, and I’m not seeing many of them coming back to Hong Kong at this moment,” Mr. Choi said. “Most of them informed us they will only come back after school restarts.”//
