Tuen Mun testing exercise done

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the restricted area in Tuen Mun finished today with no positive COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration yesterday evening, requiring people within the specified area to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing.   The area covered JC Place Tower 1 in Castle Peak Bay where 380 citizens were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 100 people’s test records were checked. Nobody was found to have not undergone mandatory testing.   Government staff also visited around 120 households in the restricted area, of which six 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 the building within a specified period for more than two hours must undergo testing by tomorrow even if they were not in the restr

Lockdown rumours denied

The Government said it has absolutely no plan to place Hong Kong under lockdown at midnight and prohibit people from departing or entering the city, or forbid them from dining in restaurants after 6pm.   In a statement of clarification today, the Government condemned those who had caused public panic by spreading such rumours online and via WhatsApp. It also stressed that law enforcement agencies will take serious action if criminal elements are involved.   During a press briefing last Friday, the Secretary for Food & Health, together with the Director of Health and the Hospital Authority Chief Executive gave updates on the latest epidemic situation and outlined the tightened measures to be taken, the Government pointed out.   Moreover, it emphasised that it will pursue such anti-epidemic actions rigorously and resolutely.   “The Government has all along been transparent with its epidemic control measures and will make announcements as early as possible. Any unhelpful speculation or spreading of rumours is counterproductive in the fight against the epidemic by the Government and the people of Hong Kong.”   The public should stay vigilant against rumours and pay attention to information released by the Government to avoid being misled, the Government advised.
