No virus cases in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise for the restricted area in Central & Western District finished today with no confirmed COVID-19 cases found.


It exercised the power under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation on March 13 to make a restriction-testing declaration, requiring people within the specified restricted area to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing.


The restricted area covered Towers 1 and 2, Robinson Place, 70 Robinson Road, Blessings Garden Phase 1, 95 Robinson Road and Blessings Garden Phase 2, 56 Conduit Road.


The Government also issued a compulsory testing notice to those who had been at the building for more than two hours from February 28 to March 13 to undergo compulsory testing on or before March 15 even if they were not in the building when the declaration took effect.


About 1,855 residents were tested.


Meanwhile, the Government assigned staff to visit about 980 households and around 150 did not answer the door. These include some households with confirmed cases or are undergoing quarantine and some units that are possibly vacant. Follow-up measures will be taken.


Sixteen people were found to have not undergone compulsory testing during the enforcement operation.
