     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) today (December 19) said that an outsourced cleaning service contractor worker has tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

     The outsourced cleaning worker concerned worked at Shun Lee Tsuen Sports Centre in Kwun Tong District. She last performed duties on December 16. She underwent a COVID-19 nucleic acid test earlier as there was a confirmed case at her residential building, and was notified yesterday (December 18) that she had tested positive for COVID-19.
