New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

Testing for couriers set

The Food & Health Bureau today announced that the Government will provide a one-off free COVID-19 testing service to all couriers, including takeaway food couriers from January 19 to 31 via online booking.   There have been concerns about the transmission of the virus through door-to-door courier services, the bureau said.   It encouraged couriers to actively participate in the free testing, adding that booking for the service can be made starting today.   Couriers should make a booking for the free testing service via the community testing centre booking system. Those who do not make an appointment will need to pay $240 for the service.   When they arrive at the community testing centre, couriers should present the identity document used for the booking and the SMS booking confirmation for verification.   During the service period, each courier can receive free testing service once only.   In addition to attending community testing centres, couriers can utilise other free testing channels provided by the Government such as obtaining a deep throat saliva specimen collection pack from post offices, MTR stations or the Hospital Authority’s designated general outpatient clinics.
