Construction worker virus tests extended

The one-off free voluntary COVID-19 testing service provided to all construction site workers in Hong Kong will continue until March 31 and those who are eligible can book online from today.   The Food & Health Bureau said the Government started to provide a one-off free voluntary COVID-19 testing service to construction site workers at community testing centres through online booking in February and the response has been positive.   Having considered the ongoing epidemic situation in the city, the bureau considered it necessary to expand and extend the testing arrangements.   The construction site workers who received testing in February can make bookings again.   Eligible people should book in advance for the free testing service via the community testing centre booking system. Those who did not do so have to pay $240 for the service.   When arriving at the community testing centre at the designated time slot, construction site workers should present the identity document used at the time of booking, the SMS booking confirmation and their construction worker registration card issued by the Construction Industry Council for verification.   Apart from the community testing centres, citizens can continue to utilise other free testing channels provided by the Government.
