Testing record checks conducted

The Government completed an enforcement action on a compulsory testing notice at Tower 6, Island Harbourview in Tai Kok Tsui today, with 12 people found to have breached the notice.   The operation started at about 7am and ended at around 10am, during which about 400 residents' test records were checked.   Noting that the enforcement process may have caused inconvenience to residents, the Government appealed for their understanding as the operation was conducted to curb the spread of COVID-19.
