More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

No virus case in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the restricted area in Ap Lei Chau finished today with no confirmed COVID-19 cases found.   It exercised the power under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation on April 23 to make a restriction-testing declaration to require people within the specified restricted area at Block 10, Yee Lai Court, South Horizons to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing.   The Government also issued a compulsory testing notice to those who had been present at the building for more than two hours from April 10 to 23 to undergo mandatory testing by April 25 even if they were not at the building when the declaration took effect.   Around 950 residents were tested.   The Government then checked about 260 people’s test records during the enforcement operation at the building. Nobody was found to have not undergone compulsory testing.   It also assigned staff to visit around 330 households in the building, of which about 30 households did not answer the door. Those residents are urged to contact the Government to arrange testing as soon as possible.
