Patrick Nip meets logistics staff

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip today visited the Government Logistics Department to learn about colleagues’ work and matters of concern.   Mr Nip said that the 2021 Policy Address proposed to enhance the effectiveness of governance, and the civil service as the Government’s backbone plays a vital role in implementing “one country, two systems”.   He encouraged staff to spare no efforts in supporting bureaus and departments, always bearing in mind to strive for excellence in service delivery.   They should be innovative, be adept at policy making as well as execution, work with a strong sense of responsibility, and make good use of innovation and technology to meet the opportunities and challenges in the new era, he added.   At the Storage & Distribution Section’s Unallocated Store, Mr Nip was briefed on the storage and delivery of essential and emergency items including protective gear for bureaus and departments.   In addition, Land Transport Division staff

Airport staff virus testing enhanced

The Government today issued a compulsory testing notice requiring people working at Hong Kong International Airport to undergo COVID-19 testing by February 25.   The compulsory testing notice covers people employed from February 4 to 25, who have the airport area as their usual place of work or service and who intend to continue to have the airport area as their usual place of work or service during March 1 to 31.   They can be employed by the Government, statutory body, airport business partners or their contractors/subcontractors, or service providers engaged by the aforementioned entities under hire-of-service contracts.   They should take a polymerase chain reaction-based nucleic acid test for COVID-19 from February 4 to 25.   The workers must visit any of the airport dedicated testing centres or community testing centres to receive free testing services by providing a specimen collected by combined nasal and throat swabs.   Tests for Hospital Authority staff working in the airport area shall be carried out at any of the authority’s medical facilities.   The people concerned may opt for self-arranged testing provided by a laboratory recognised by the Department of Health at their own expense.   They shall obtain and keep the test report or the relevant SMS or email notification containing the test result for checking by the enforcement officers from March 1 to 31.   The Government estimates that close to 70,000 people will take part in this compulsory test.   Upon completion of the one-off compulsory testing scheme, the Government and the Airport Authority will roll out a voluntary regular testing scheme in March for airport staff who may have a higher risk of exposure to COVID-19 from outside Hong Kong.
