Response to enquiries on registration arrangements at temporary testing centre
     In response to media enquiries about registration arrangements for members of the public at the Yau Tsim Mong Temporary Testing Centre, a Government spokesman today (October 18) gave the following reply:

     "To facilitate testing by members of the public, they could visit the temporary testing centre directly for on-site registration without the need for making prior online appointment. An SMS message will be sent to a person's registered mobile number when his or her test result is available.
     "If any member of the public could not provide mobile phone numbers, the staff on site would offer assistance in a bid to facilitate him or her to receive the test. Several persons who were unable to provide their mobile phone numbers today had successfully got the tests done under the assistance of the staff. We will review the relevant procedures and guidelines so that the arrangements could be further improved for any similar exercises in the future.
     "After the temporary testing centre ceased operation, members of the public may still obtain the deep throat saliva specimen collection packs at the 46 general outpatient clinics of the Hospital Authority for free COVID-19 tests."
