FEHD continues to arrange free COVID-19 testing services for targeted groups
     A spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said today (October 29) that the FEHD will continue to arrange free COVID-19 testing services for targeted groups, including high-exposure groups such as staff and personnel working in markets, licensed hawkers and staff of cold stores, to safeguard public health. The deadline for online registration for the scheme has been extended to December 31. People in high-exposure groups who have already registered and undergone testing may register again.

     Under the scheme, the testing agency (Health Hope International Medical Laboratory Limited) will be responsible for the provision of one-stop services covering specimen taking and testing. For details of the testing programme, please call the hotline of the testing agency at 5722 3847 or visit the FEHD website (www.fehd.gov.hk/english/events/covid19_test/info_20200926.html).

     To minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission, the spokesman appealed to the groups concerned to continue to comply with the directions made under the Prevention and Control of Disease (Requirements and Directions) (Business and Premises) Regulation (Cap. 599F), and to maintain personal and environmental hygiene continuously with a view to ensuring cleanliness of the premises and food safety.
