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

Jabs necessary for airport staff

The latest vaccination requirements for airport staff are for their protection against the health hazard they are exposed to in light of the epidemic situation overseas, Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan said today.   The Airport Authority has announced that targeted groups of workers will be required to receive COVID-19 vaccines, with negative test results no longer a substitute for vaccination.   Speaking to reporters, Prof Chan said: “If we look at the airport, it is a high-risk place, especially when we are having inbound travellers, be it transit or coming to Hong Kong from places where there may be very high risk in terms of the epidemic situation.”   The groups subject to the new requirements include those with close-range contact with arrivals or transfer and transit passengers.   “For those people who are working in the areas whereby they would have close contact with inbound travellers or transit passengers, it is important to protect them and also to ensure that they are vaccinated.”   The vaccination requirements will be effective from September 1.
