3 restricted areas set

The Government made restriction-testing declarations today to require people within the specified restricted areas in Tuen Mun, Chai Wan and To Kwa Wan to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing for COVID-19 from tonight.   The restricted areas include Tower 1, Goodview Garden in Tuen Mun, May Wah House, Hing Wah (I) Estate, Chai Wan as well as Block D, Honour Building in To Kwa Wan.   After risk assessment, the Government believes it is necessary to issue restriction-testing declarations for the restricted areas to achieve the goal of zero cases in these districts with concerted efforts.   The declarations for Tuen Mun and Chai Wan took effect at 7pm, while To Kwa Wan's took effect at 8.30pm.   The Government will set up temporary specimen collection stations at the restricted areas and request people subject to compulsory testing in Jordan to get tested before midnight. People within the To Kwa Wan restricted area have to get tested before 00.30am, while those within the restricted areas in Tuen Mun and Chai Wan must be tested before 2am.   They will be arranged to undergo a nucleic acid test at specimen collection stations where staff will collect samples through combined nasal and throat swabs.   The Government will arrange door-to-door specimen collection for people with impaired mobility and seniors, or arrange for them to self-collect and submit the deep throat saliva specimens.   It aims to finish these exercises by around 6.30am to 7am tomorrow.   Those who have undergone testing from January 31 to February 3 in the Chai Wan restricted area and can provide the SMS notification or related certification containing the test results are not required to be tested again. But they must stay in their premises until all people in the area have been tested and the results are mostly ascertained.   The same applied to those who were tested from February 1 to 3 in the Tuen Mun and To Kwa Wan restricted areas.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued today, those who had been at these buildings for more than two hours from January 21 to February 3, even if they were not present in the restricted areas when the declaration took effect, must undergo compulsory testing by February 5.   The Government has prepared simple food and basic cleaning tools for the residents restricted by the declaration. The Home Affairs Department has set up a hotline 2835 1473 for these residents to make enquiries and seek assistance. The Social Welfare Department will also assist those affected.
