Ten caught violated compulsory testing order

Ten caught violated compulsory testing order

Officials said they caught 10 people in Western Mid-Levels and Sheung Wan this morning who couldn't prove they had taken Covid tests as ordered.
The government said that during a morning operation at Block 1 of The Grand Panorama on 10 Robinson Road and Po Hing Mansion on 2-8 Po Hing Fong, police and officials checked the test records of around 560 residents and found 10 had violated a recent compulsory testing notice.

Fines of HK$5,000 and new testing orders were dished out to the alleged offenders, requiring them to undergo testing within a specified period.

They have also been warned that non-compliance can lead to a larger fine of HK$25,000 and six months in prison.

A government spokesman said the authorities understand that the enforcement process may cause some inconvenience to the residents, but hopes that the residents can understand.
