******************************************************************************************
     In light of positive test results for the COVID-19 virus from sewage samples collected in Tsuen Wan, Tuen Mun, Tai Po and Yuen Long Districts, the Home Affairs Department (HAD) said today (July 26) that the Tsuen Wan District Office (TWDO), the Tuen Mun District Office (TMDO), the Tai Po District Office (TPDO) and the Yuen Long District Office (YLDO) have distributed a total of about 191 000 COVID-19 rapid test kits to households, cleansing workers and property management staff living and working in the Districts.

     The TWDO distributed rapid test kits to households, cleansing workers and property management staff living and working in Primrose Hill and The Rise for voluntary testing through the property management companies. The TWDO also distributed rapid test kits to households living in Yau Ma Hom Resite Village, Chung Kwai Chung Tsuen, Tai Pak Tin Village, Sheung Kwai Chung Village and Hoi Pa San Tsuen Section Two for voluntary testing through the Village Representatives.
      
     The TMDO also distributed rapid test kits to households, cleansing workers and property management staff living and working in Richland Garden and Melody Garden for voluntary testing through the property management companies.
      
     The TPDO also distributed rapid test kits to households, cleansing workers and property management staff living and working in St Martin, The Horizon, Centra Horizon, Solaria, Mayfair By The Sea I, Mayfair By The Sea II, Providence Bay, ONTOLO, Providence Peak, The Graces´╝ÄProvidence Bay, Villa Castell, Deerhill Bay and San Uk Ka for voluntary testing through the property management companies, the owners' corporations, the owners' committees and the Village Representative.
      
     In addition, the YLDO commenced distributing rapid test kits to households, cleansing workers and property management staff living and working in Tin Chung Court, Vianni Cove, Wetland Seasons Park and Yuccie Square for voluntary testing through the property management companies.

     The HAD made the above arrangements in the hope of identifying infected persons early.

     Members of the public may refer to the demonstration video produced by the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) under the Department of Health (DH) via www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzFAUzTtmKk to learn how to use the rapid antigen test (RAT) kit.

     Persons testing positive through an RAT should take a photo of the test result and declare the result within 24 hours via the Declaration System for Individuals Tested Positive for COVID-19 Using Rapid Antigen Test (www.chp.gov.hk/ratp). If members of the public encounter difficulties in using the online platform, they can call the automated system at 183 6119 to register their identification document and telephone number. The CHP under the DH will contact the relevant person later to complete the report procedure. There is no need to declare negative test results.

     The Government appeals for the co-operation of members of the public to safeguard the health of themselves and their families by undergoing testing on a voluntary basis and fighting the virus together. The Government urges all individuals who are in doubt about their own health condition, or individuals with infection risks (such as individuals who visited places with epidemic outbreaks or had contact with cases that tested positive), to undergo testing promptly for early identification of infected persons to reduce the transmission risks of COVID-19.
