Clerical Assistant of ICAC preliminarily tested positive for COVID-19
The following press release is issued on behalf of the Independent Commission Against Corruption:

     The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) spokesperson noted that a Clerical Assistant of the Operations Department was today (February 8) preliminarily tested positive for COVID-19. The case has yet to be confirmed by the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) and further instructions are awaiting.

     The Clerical Assistant concerned performed support duties at the ICAC Building in North Point and was not required to be in contact with members of the public. She had worn a mask and followed the relevant disease prevention measures at work. She last went to the office on January 31.

     In accordance with the CHP's guidelines, the ICAC has arranged thorough cleaning and disinfection of the area concerned at the ICAC Building. ICAC officers who had contacts with the Clerical Assistant concerned and those who worked on the same floor are undergoing COVID-19 testing. They will work from home while waiting for testing results. Staff redeployment has been made to ensure relevant services are not affected.

     The ICAC has reminded all officers to pay attention to personal hygiene and reduce social contacts to minimise the risks of spreading COVID-19. Should they feel unwell, they should report the case and consult a doctor immediately.

     The ICAC will continue to strictly implement disease prevention measures during the epidemic, and will continue to maintain close liaison with the CHP in taking appropriate follow-up actions.
