New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

No COVID-19 cases in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the Happy Valley restricted area finished today with no confirmed COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration last night, requiring people at Way Man Court, 50-52 Village Road to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing. As at 11pm, around 130 residents were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement action, about 20 people's test records were checked and all of them have undergone mandatory testing.   The Government also assigned staff to visit around 50 households, of which five did not answer the door. Follow-up measures will be taken.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, 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.
