     Hospitals concerned have conducted contact tracing as required and arranged cleaning for disinfection. All related staff members had worn appropriate personal protective equipment at work. No patient has been identified as close contact so far. Since some of the abovementioned staff members had been eating or chatting with other staff members without wearing masks, 17 staff members had been identified as close contacts. They will be arranged to be quarantined and be tested as required.

     As the physiotherapy department in Queen Mary Hospital and Tsan Yuk Hospital had to be closed today for deep cleaning and disinfection, about 50 patient appointments were rescheduled to the next week.
     In light of the deteriorating epidemic situation, the HA again reminds its staff to minimise social activities and avoid having meals with other staff members. Staff members should also wear appropriate personal protective equipment at work.
