The government on Sunday evening issued a compulsory testing notice ordering people who've visited 61 specified premises to undergo Covid-19 tests.

"In view of 65 locally acquired cases, one import-related case and one case tested preliminarily positive, 56 specified premises are included in the compulsory testing notice," health officials said in a statement.

They urged members of the public to go for tests on time, adding that officials will also visit the affected premises to notify residents.

"Furthermore, since some sewage samples collected in Wong Tai Sin, Tuen Mun and Sha Tin have tested positive, five specified premises are included in the compulsory testing notice," they added.

They said the compulsory testing requirement also applies to members of the public who are fully vaccinated.
