Officials visit govt offices

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip and Secretary for Financial Services & the Treasury Christopher Hui today visited the Cheung Sha Wan Government Offices.   They learnt about the operation of a temporary testing station set up for staff working at the building as well as the resumption of more public services by government departments.   Currently, 15 departments have set up offices at the building, providing public services such as health, district affairs enquiry, registration of persons and death and vehicle licensing services.   The Government Property Agency set up a temporary testing station at the building from today to February 2 (except the weekend) to provide a free virus testing service for staff members who work there, after two government staff at the building tested positive for COVID-19.    Mr Nip and Mr Hui inspected the station’s first-day of operation, including the testing service workflow and the infection control and social distancing measures put in place. They also took a virus test on site.   Both officials noted that early testing can safeguard staff safety and health and help clear any doubts of people visiting the premises for public services. They appealed to all colleagues working at the building to join the free testing plan.   Starting today, government departments resume the provision of some basic public services, in addition to emergency services and essential public services. Mr Nip and Mr Hui said they were pleased to learn that the service resumption was generally smooth on the first day.
