Testing records checked

The Government today completed a joint enforcement operation at Block 12 of Richland Gardens in Kowloon Bay, which was earlier included in a compulsory testing notice.   The enforcement action was conducted from around 8am to 11am by the Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Bureau together with Police and the Department of Health.   Out of the 269 people whose records were checked, three had failed to comply with the notice. They were issued with a compulsory testing order and a fixed penalty notice of $10,000. http://dlvr.it/SZ0L6k

2021 census proceeds to 2nd phase

The Census & Statistics Department said that the 2021 Population Census will start the face-to-face interviewing phase from tomorrow until August 4.   Census officers, working in pairs, will visit households that have yet to submit the completed questionnaires to collect the required information.   Commissioner for Census & Statistics Marion Chan reported that as of July 16, around 1.63 million households have completed the questionnaires.   She appealed to households that have received the notification letters from the department to participate in the census by completing their questionnaires through online or telephone means as soon as possible to reduce face-to-face contact.   Those who have received paper questionnaires may also return the completed questionnaires to the department by post.   The census officers will not visit those households that have submitted the questionnaires.   For some households including those without a clearly identifiable postal address who may not have received a notification letter by post earlier, the department will arrange census officers to visit them to deliver the notification letters directly and conduct face-to-face interviews.   Forty-four field centres have been set up for the census in various districts. Ms Chan visited the one in Wan Chai today to learn more about the census officers' work and give them encouragement.   She also called for the public's support for the census and co-operation with the census officers.   The census officers will normally visit households between 1pm to 10pm from Monday to Sunday. They will wear a purple T-shirt uniform with a 2021 Population Census badge and carry a red satchel with the census logo. They will also identify themselves with a census officer identity certificate issued by the department.   People may make a prior appointment for a face-to-face interview by calling the census hotline at 18 2021, and should check the census officers' identity carefully before admitting them to the premises or providing data.   Ms Chan stressed that data of individuals and households collected would be kept strictly confidential. Such information would only be used for compiling statistics but not for other purposes.   All census officers also signed a declaration not to disclose to unauthorised people any information that they have in the course of their duties.

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
