     In light of positive test results for the COVID-19 virus from some sewage samples collected in Yau Tsim Mong, North District and Kwai Tsing, the Home Affairs Department (HAD) said today (April 27) that the Yau Tsim Mong District Office (YTMDO), the North District Office (NDO) and the Kwai Tsing District Office (K&TDO) will distribute a total of about 355 000 COVID-19 rapid test kits to households, cleansing workers and property management staff living and working in the districts.               The YTMDO distributed rapid test kits to households, cleansing workers and property management staff living and working in Parc Palais and King’s Park Villa for voluntary testing through the property management companies.      The NDO today also started to distribute rapid test kits to households, cleansing workers and property management staff living and working in Royal Green, Glorious Peak, 8 Royal Green, Sheung Shui Centre, Sunningdale Garden, Sheung Shui Town Centre, Woodland Crest, Regentville, Noble Hill, Good View New Village, Union Plaza, Fanling Town Center, Fanling Centre, Grand Regentville, Green Code, Metropolis Plaza, Belair Monte and Lung Fung Garden for voluntary testing through the property management companies.      In addition, the K&TDO today started to distribute rapid test kits to households, cleansing workers and property management staff living and working in New Kwai Fong Gardens, Kwai Fong Terrace, Kwai Chung Plaza and residential premises around Shing Fong Street, Shek Yam Road and 402 to 482 Castle Peak Road – Kwai Chung for voluntary testing through the property management companies and the owners’ corporations.               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 about the way of using the rapid antigen test (RAT) kit.               Persons tested 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.
