Due to a number of positive cases, 44 specified places are included in a compulsory testing notice. The Government will set up additional mobile specimen collection stations at Lido Garden in Sham Tseng and Park Island in Ma Wan tomorrow.


Meanwhile, the Government made a restriction-testing declaration to cover Block 4 and Block 11 of Lung Mun Oasis in Tuen Mun. People in the restricted area are required to undergo compulsory testing before the specified deadline.


As there were positive sewage test results with relatively high viral loads in several areas of Southern, Islands and Kwai Tsing districts, the Housing Department and respective district offices will distribute COVID-19 rapid test kits to relevant residents as well as cleaning workers and property management staff working there.
