Testing compliance check ends

February 19, 2021

The Government today said a joint enforcement operation on a compulsory testing notice for a building in Tsim Sha Tsui has been completed.


Sixteen people were found to have violated the notice.


The notice covered Austin Mansion at 15A Austin Avenue.


The enforcement action was conducted this morning by the Yau Tsim Mong District Office, together with the Home Affairs Department’s Office of the Licensing Authority, Police, the Centre for Health Protection and the Auxiliary Medical Service.


About 130 residents’ test records were checked during the operation that ended by 9am.


The Government thanked residents who complied with the testing notice. Those who violated the notice were issued fixed penalties of $5,000 or compulsory testing orders, or both.


Noting that the enforcement process may cause inconvenience to residents, the Government appealed for their understanding as the operation was conducted to stop the spread of COVID-19.
