Tests at restricted area completed

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the restricted area in Tseung Kwan O finished today.   It exercised the power under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation on March 19 to make a restriction-testing declaration, requiring people within the specified restricted area at Tower 9, La Splendeur, LOHAS Park to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing.   The Government also issued a compulsory testing notice to those who had been present in the building for more than two hours from March 6 to 19 to undergo compulsory testing on or before March 21, even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect.   As at 2am, 1,235 residents were tested and a second collection of specimen will be arranged for one of the residents as the original specimen collected was not suitable for testing.   Meanwhile, 13 people were found to have not undergone compulsory testing during the enforcement operation.   The Government assigned staff to visit about 450 households, of which around 60 did not answer the door.   Those who did not answer the door are urged to contact the Government to arrange testing as soon as possible.
