Around 1,122 residents were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement action, about 390 people's test records were checked, among which eight people were found to have not undergone mandatory testing.   The Government also assigned staff to visit around 370 households, of which 32 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 have stayed in the building for more than two hours from December 17 to 31, 2021, must undergo compulsory testing by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect.
