In order to combat COVID-19, Hong Kong has amended the Prevention and Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation (Cap. 599J) to empower the Secretary for Food and Health to make a "restriction-testing declaration" in relation to any premises if the requirement specified is fulfilled. Such a declaration will have the effect of prohibiting persons on the premises from leaving and restricting entry into the premises. Any restricted person found on such premises may be required to undergo a test for COVID-19. Click here for details.
