Yau Ma Tei mobile testing continues

The Government today said it will continue to arrange compulsory testing for places with one or more confirmed COVID-19 cases in Yau Ma Tei.   A mobile specimen collection station at Kwun Chung Sports Centre and mobile specimen collection vehicles located at the section of Canton Road between Jordan Road and Saigon Street have been set up to conduct free testing for residents.   Residents required to undergo compulsory testing may also take the test for free at the testing centre set up at Henry G Leong Yaumatei Community Centre.   The Home Affairs Department and its Yau Tsim Mong District Office have arranged for helpers who speak Nepali, Urdu and other languages to conduct home visits and explain relevant arrangements at buildings covered by the compulsory testing notices.   They distributed information in multiple languages and registered residents’ details to facilitate follow-up on mandatory testing in the future.   So far, more than 7,100 residents have undergone testing at the above venues.   The Government appealed to people under compulsory testing notices to get tested as soon as possible.   Those who fail to comply with the testing notice may be fined $5,000 and will be issued a compulsory testing order requiring them to undergo testing within a specified time frame.   If they fail to comply with the order, they will be liable to a $25,000 fine and six months’ imprisonment.
