     The Housing Department today (February 5) learnt that a project resident engineer has tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
     The engineer mainly works at the construction site of Tai Po Area 9. He is responsible for supervision and inspection of the construction works. He has been wearing facial masks when performing duties. He last worked at the site on February 3.
