Testing compliance check ends

February 22, 2021

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


Seventy people were found to have violated the notice.


The notice covered Ming Yan Lau of Jat Min Chuen.


The enforcement action was conducted this morning by the Sha Tin District Office, together with the Housing Society, Police, the Centre for Health Protection and the Auxiliary Medical Service.


About 2,500 residents' test records were checked during the operation that ended by 1pm.


The Government thanked residents who had complied with the testing notice. Those who violated the notice were issued a fixed penalty of $5,000 or a compulsory testing order, 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.
