Tai Wo Hau testing check done

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for Fu Keung House in Tai Wo Hau Estate finished today with no positive COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration yesterday evening, requiring people in the specified area to stay in their premises and undergo mandatory testing. About 1,150 people were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 335 people’s test records were checked. Twenty-four people were found to have not received compulsory testing.   Government staff also visited around 720 households in the area, of which 40 did not answer the door. Such households are urged to contact the Government promptly to arrange testing.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, those who had stayed in Fu Keung House within a specified period for more than two hours must get tested by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect. http://dlvr.it/

Heritage Fiesta to launch

The Heritage Fiesta & Roving Exhibition 2021 will be held from September 1 to December 31, during which 11 revitalisation projects of government-owned historic buildings will offer free guided tours for the public.   The buildings include 10 projects under Batches I to III of the Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme and PMQ under the Conserving Central initiative. Free guided tours will be provided from September 1 to October 31 on a first-come, first-served basis.   People may also visit the buildings during opening hours and collect uniquely designed stamps.   The Commissioner for Heritage's Office said the revitalisation projects featured in the event showcase the concerted conservation efforts between the Government and non-profit-making organisations.   Some of them have also received honours from the United Nations Educational, Scientific & Cultural Organization Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation.   The office encouraged the public to visit and appreciate these historic gems constructed across different times and understand their histories and architectural features.   The roving exhibition will be held at several government venues, public libraries, museums and shopping malls from September 1 to December 31.   Call 2906 1559 for enquiries.
