     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) today (August 10) said that an outsourced security guard has tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

     The outsourced security guard concerned worked at the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens in Central and Western District. She last performed duties on August 1. She felt unwell earlier and sought medical treatment, and was notified yesterday (August 9) that she had tested positive for COVID-19. She has been treated under isolation in hospital.
