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

High-risk place list updated

The Government announced today it will specify Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam as high-risk specified places with effect from June 4. The boarding and quarantine requirements for people arriving from these places will be adjusted.   The adjustment was made upon close monitoring of the epidemic developments in relevant places, the prevalence of mutant virus strains and the case importation risks that may pose to Hong Kong.   People who have stayed in high-risk specified places on the day of boarding or during the 14 days before that day will have to present at boarding a negative result proof of a nucleic acid test for COVID-19 conducted within 72 hours before the scheduled time of the aircraft's departure, as well as the confirmation of a room reservation in a designated quarantine hotel in Hong Kong.    Those who have been fully vaccinated will be subject to a 14-day compulsory quarantine at designated quarantine hotels, with three tests to be conducted during the period, followed by a seven-day self-monitoring period as well as compulsory testing on the 16th and 19th day of arrival in Hong Kong.    Otherwise, they will be subject to a 21-day compulsory quarantine at designated quarantine hotels, with four tests to be conducted during the period.   Meanwhile, having considered the UK's continued rising vaccination rate and that there have been no imported cases since the resumption of passenger flights to Hong Kong, the Government will also specify the UK as a high-risk specified place from June 4 onwards.
