District councillors' acts regrettable

The Home Affairs Department today expressed regret over the consumption of alcoholic drinks by four members of the Sham Shui Po District Council (SSPDC) at a meeting yesterday.   Based on online videos and the discussion at the meeting, the four District Council (DC) members were Janet Ng, Kalvin Ho, Eunice Chau and Lawrence Lau. Their consumption of alcoholic drinks at the meeting brought the reputation of the SSPDC into disrepute and failed to fulfil the public's expectation of DC members.   The District Officer (Sham Shui Po) referred to the Sham Shui Po District Council Standing Orders at the meeting, pointing out that a DC member should ensure that his or her conduct must not be such as to bring the DC into disrepute, should not at any time or in any respect do anything which might compromise or impair his or her integrity, impartiality, objectivity or his or her ability to perform his or her duties, and should not place himself or herself in a position which might be cont

People in restricted area test negative

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise for the restricted area in North Point finished at around 7am today and no positive cases were found.   It said from 7am, people in the restricted area who can present SMS notifications with negative test results or wear wristbands as proof of having undergone testing can leave the area.   The Government exercised the power under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation to make a restriction-testing declaration at 7pm on January 28, requiring people within the specified restricted area at Blocks A, B, C and D of Tung Fat Building at Kam Ping Street in North Point to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing.   They had to stay in their premises until all people in the area were tested and the test results were mostly ascertained.   Additionally, the Government issued compulsory testing notices earlier to those who had been at the building for more than two hours during a specified period to undergo mandatory testing even if they were not present in the restricted area at the time when the declaration took effect.   Twelve temporary specimen collection stations were set up in the restricted area to have people's combined nasal and throat swab samples collected for COVID-19 testing.   About 475 residents were tested as at 2am and no positive cases were found.   Meanwhile, the Government assigned staff to visit about 660 households. After deducting those in units 6 and 7 on all floors of Block C which have been put under quarantine, about 190 households did not answer the door.   Some of these households have confirmed cases or are undergoing quarantine, and some units are possibly vacant. The Government will take measures to follow up.
