Civil Aid Service holds parade

The Civil Aid Service (CAS) held the Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and CAS 70th Anniversary Parade today at the Police College.   Chief Secretary Chan Kwok-ki officiated at the ceremony and acted as the reviewing officer for the parade.   To demonstrate national identity and patriotic sentiment for the motherland, the CAS has fully adopted from today, the Chinese-style foot drill that requires exacting standards, and demonstrated the drill's protocols for the first time in the parade.   As an auxiliary force under the Security Bureau, the CAS has been honouring the pledge of "provide emergency relief, serve the community" and has been rendering immediate assistance during emergencies to protect Hong Kong citizens.   During the COVID-19 epidemic, the CAS has remained steadfast on the front line of the anti-epidemic operations by rapidly assisting in setting up a number of community isolation faci

Construction worker virus tests extended

The one-off free voluntary COVID-19 testing service provided to all construction site workers in Hong Kong will continue until March 31 and those who are eligible can book online from today.   The Food & Health Bureau said the Government started to provide a one-off free voluntary COVID-19 testing service to construction site workers at community testing centres through online booking in February and the response has been positive.   Having considered the ongoing epidemic situation in the city, the bureau considered it necessary to expand and extend the testing arrangements.   The construction site workers who received testing in February can make bookings again.   Eligible people should book in advance for the free testing service via the community testing centre booking system. Those who did not do so have to pay $240 for the service.   When arriving at the community testing centre at the designated time slot, construction site workers should present the identity document used at the time of booking, the SMS booking confirmation and their construction worker registration card issued by the Construction Industry Council for verification.   Apart from the community testing centres, citizens can continue to utilise other free testing channels provided by the Government.

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 124 additional COVID-19 cases. More cases were detected in Kwai Chung Estate. There are also more than 70 preliminary positive cases.   Among the newly reported cases, 33 are related to Kwai Chung Estate, bringing the total number of positive and preliminary positive cases in the estate to 276.   One more positive case was found after an earlier confirmed case occurred at Glory Court, Tsuen Wan Garden, both of them live in units 5 but on two different floors. The centre has co-ordinated with related government departments and conducted an inspection today.    It was preliminarily considered that vertical transmission of virus via pipes is involved.   The centre will issue quarantine orders to residents of unit 5 on all floors of the building who resided there during the incubation period of the relevant cases and transfer them to a quarantine facility.   As it is possible that virus might be ejected from the open
