Ten people were found to have not undergone mandatory testing and were issued with a compulsory testing order.   Additionally, the Government assigned staff to visit around 420 households in the buildings, of which about 30 did not answer the door. These include some households with confirmed cases or are undergoing quarantine and some units that are possibly vacant.   Those who did not answer the door are urged to contact the Government to arrange testing as soon as possible.
