The Government tonight made a restriction-testing declaration for Way Man Court in Happy Valley due to a preliminary positive imported COVID-19 case involving the L452R mutant strain.   The Centre for Health Protection said the 31-year-old female patient is a foreign domestic helper who arrived in Hong Kong on October 23 from the Philippines.   Her specimen collected upon arrival in the airport’s temporary specimen collection centre tested negative for COVID-19. The results of the six tests conducted during compulsory quarantine were also negative.   Upon completion of the compulsory quarantine on November 13, she returned to her employer’s residence of at Way Man Court, 50-52 Village Road, Happy Valley.   She took another test on November 18 at a community testing centre and the sample tested preliminarily positive, with a Ct value of larger than 30. Her specimen carried the L452R mutant strain.   The patient has been asymptomatic and received one dose of COVID-19 vaccination on July 23 in the Philippines.     In view of the presence of a mutant strain, the Government decided to make a restriction-testing declaration for Way Man Court as a precaution.   The declaration took effect from 7.30pm and aims to be finished by about 7am tomorrow. People in the restricted area are required to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing before 11pm tonight.   Those who have undergone testing from November 17 to 19 and can provide the SMS notification or related certification containing the test results do not need to get tested again.   According to today’s compulsory testing notice, people who had been at the premises for more than two hours from October 29 to November 19 must undergo compulsory testing by November 21 even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect. Vaccinated people are also subject to the requirement.   Moreover, the places where the patient had visited in Hong Kong during the incubation period will also be included in a compulsory testing notice.
