Testing compliance check done

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for 35-37 Nam Cheong Street in Sham Shui Po finished today with no positive COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration yesterday evening, requiring people in the specified area to stay in their premises and undergo mandatory testing. About 50 people were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 20 people’s test records were checked. No one was found to have not received compulsory testing.   Government staff also visited around 20 households in the area, of which five did not answer the door. Such households are urged to contact the Government promptly to arrange testing.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, those who had stayed in 35-37 Nam Cheong Street within a specified period for more than two hours must get tested by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted areas when the declarations took effect. http://dlvr.it/S

The Government today announced that it disbursed via the four stored value facility (SVF) operators the first $2,000 consumption voucher to about 5.5 million eligible people who had completed electronic registration by July 17.   Such people will successively receive SMS or mobile app push notifications concerning the Consumption Voucher Scheme’s disbursement.       Those who have completed electronic registration on or after July 18 and all who have submitted paper registration forms will receive the first $2,000 consumption voucher on September 1 after verification of eligibility.       For people who chose to collect the vouchers via AlipayHK, Tap & Go or WeChat Pay HK, the $2,000 vouchers have been directly injected into their specified SVF accounts.       Those who chose to collect the vouchers via Octopus cards may collect the $2,000 voucher by tapping the card at the Public Transport Fare Subsidy Scheme’s subsidy collection points at MTR stations, Light Rail Customer Service Centres, designated piers and public transport interchanges within three months from today.   They can also tap the card at designated convenience stores and supermarkets, Octopus Service Points or via Octopus app.   Registrants who have completed electronic registration on or before July 17 but have not yet received the SMS notifications on their registration results may enquire about their registration status using the hotline 18 5000.       The Government reminded eligible people who have not yet registered to submit registration by August 14.        People should also carefully protect their personal data when registering for the scheme and using the vouchers.
