Five additional community testing centres located at Lai King Community Hall, Wo Hing Community Hall in Fanling, Siu Lun Community Hall in Tuen Mun, Hang Hau Community Hall and Yau Tong Community Hall will open from tomorrow.

The community testing centres provide self-paid COVID-19 testing services for the public at a more affordable price to serve general community or private purposes such as certification for travelling or work.

The price of testing services is capped at $240, with payment to be made in accordance with the arrangement of testing contractors.

The five additional testing centres will operate for an initial period of three months.

They will provide specimen collection services using combined nasal and throat swabs and COVID-19 testing services for all asymptomatic individuals holding valid Hong Kong identity cards, Hong Kong birth certificates or other valid identity documents.

The centres are open daily from 8am to 1.30pm and from 2.30pm to 8pm. Deep cleaning and disinfection will be conducted when they close in the afternoon and at night.

Booking and walk-in services are available.

All 121 post offices will distribute COVID-19 specimen collection packs from tomorrow.

The public should note that all post offices will not collect specimens.

People can return the deep throat saliva specimen to the Hospital Authority’s 47 general out-patient clinics or the Department of Health’s 13 clinics within the designated time.
