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

SZ port virus testing streamlined

The Government today announced that it has enhanced its rapid nucleic acid testing capacity and will launch an online booking arrangement within next week for the special nucleic acid testing service at Shenzhen Bay Port.   This will facilitate travellers’ trip planning and allow them to depart through Shenzhen Bay Control Point in an orderly manner, the Government said in a press release.   Under the upcoming booking arrangement, travellers must first obtain a quota at a Shenzhen quarantine hotel and then reserve a timeslot for the special nucleic acid test on the day of departure through an online booking system. They should arrive at the Shenzhen Bay Control Point for the special nucleic acid test as scheduled. Those without bookings will not be allowed to enter the control point for nucleic acid testing and immigration clearance.   The arrangement will help further shorten the processing time of the special nucleic acid test, reduce the waiting time and refine the crowd management at Shenzhen Bay Control Point, the Government said.   To avoid overcrowding, the Government urged travellers not to use the Shenzhen Bay Port during peak hours from 9am to noon. It will also announce the daily peak hours and expected waiting time at the port for travellers’ reference.   Before implementing online booking, the Government will consider adopting crowd control measures as appropriate if there is overcrowding, it added.
