The Government has arranged for a testing agency to set up a mobile specimen collection station at the basketball court of Hung Cheuk Lau at Kwun Tong Garden Estate to provide COVID-19 testing service from today.

The mobile station was set up after several COVID-19 cases were reported at Lotus Tower of Kwun Tong Garden Estate. The station provides free testing service for residents and workers in that district.

It will tentatively run until December 30 and operate from 10am to 8pm.

Testing agencies are providing specimen collection services by combined nasal and throat swabs at mobile stations in various districts.

People subject to compulsory testing and undergo testing at mobile specimen collection stations will be deemed to have undergone a test at a community testing centre.

Those whose test results are negative will be informed by SMS.

People with a preliminary positive result will be referred to the Department of Health’s Public Health Laboratory Services Branch for a confirmatory test.

Confirmed cases will be followed up and announced by the Centre for Health Protection.
