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

Care home staff to be tested

Staff of residential care homes for the elderly (RCHEs), residential care homes for persons with disabilities (RCHDs) and nursing homes must undergo the seventh round of COVID-19 nucleic acid testing from February 7 to 20.   The Secretary for Food & Health issued the compulsory testing notice on February 3.   The notice covers those employed by and will be on duty at RCHEs, RCHDs, nursing homes and day service units attached to residential care homes for the period from February 21 to March 2.   It also covers those who will provide services to residents or users through hire-of-service contracts during that period.   They must not take the sample themselves and should receive specimen collection services using combined nasal and throat swabs.   Relevant staff may choose to undergo free testing at community testing centres, mobile specimen collection stations or self-arrange testing in laboratories recognised by the Government at their own expense.   They can also have their specimens collected by a healthcare professional or trained personnel arranged by institution operators at government-recognised laboratories.
