1. Latest quarantine and testing arrangements for overseas arrivals and forthcoming implementation of self-paid serology antibody testing service at airport

The Government further elaborated on the arrangements applicable to children aged under 12, and strengthen the compulsory testing requirements applicable to persons arriving from low-risk places.

Separately, the self-paid serology antibody testing service will be provided for eligible arrivals from August 18. Relevant fully vaccinated persons arriving at Hong Kong can choose to undergo a self-paid serology antibody test at the airport's Temporary Specimen Collection Centre during "test and hold".

2. 26 Community Vaccination Centres extend operation for one month

The demand for COVID-19 vaccination has increased recently. Should the vaccination progress be maintained at the current pace or increase, it is likely that 70 per cent of the eligible population will at least have had their first dose of a vaccine by the end of September. In view of the demand for vaccination and the vaccination progress, the Government has decided to extend the operation of CVCs until October 31.
