Any person who had been present in the above places (including but not limited to full-time, part-time and relief staff and visitors), has to undergo testing by 11 November 2021.

The notice was triggered by two cargo pilots who were exempt from quarantine after their return to Hong Kong, as they had been to a Germany – a Group B, or medium-risk country, according to Hong Kong’s three-tier categorisation of places considered Covid-19 risks.

Eight schools were also listed as part of the notice issued on November 9 due to outbreaks of URTI (upper respiratory tract infection) or influenza-type illness.
