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

Group's non-compliance condemned

Police’s National Security Department today severely condemned an organisation’s open expression that it would refuse to provide the data requested pursuant to the National Security Law.   Under Schedule 5 of the Implementation Rules for Article 43 of the National Security Law, Police issued notices in writing to various organisations on August 25 asking for information to be provided no later than September 7. While certain organisations had complied with the instruction, some others requested an extension.   It also noticed an organisation openly repeated that it would not follow the legal requirement and reject the information request.   The force reiterated that people or organisations failing to provide information in time will be liable to a fine of $100,000 and imprisonment for half a year.   Follow-up action will be taken in accordance with the law with respect to incompliance, Police added.
