The Government has decided to revise the compulsory testing strategy under the risk-based principle as follows, with effect from February 25 until further notice:1. The Government will continue to conduct RTD operations targeting higher-risk buildings, with plans to cover more buildings. The compulsory testing requirements upon completion of RTD operations will be replaced with RAT conducted by the residents;2. For places with higher infection risks (such as buildings and catering premises recording multiple cases etc.), the Government will distribute rapid test kits to relevant persons (such as staff and residents etc.) instead of issuing CTNs as in past practice. In other words, relevant persons no longer need to conduct tests at community testing centres (CTC) / mobile specimen collection stations, and may conduct RAT on their own. The CTNs which had already been issued will also be cancelled. The Government will continue to distribute rapid test kits to residents, cleansing workers and property management staff in relevant districts where positive results are detected in sewage surveillance; and3. As for practitioners in high-risk and high-exposure groups (including staff of quarantine centres / hotels / facilities and designated transport, airport staff (Orange Zone and Green Zone), staff of container terminals and shipping services, cold store practitioners, etc.), the compulsory testing frequency will be reduced from once in every two / three days to once in every seven days. The Government will also distribute rapid test kits to relevant practitioners through the trades, such that they may perform more frequent tests in a testing cycle.https://www.info.gov.hk/gia/general/202202/25/P2022022500816.htm

The tests marked with # may be carried out using deep throat saliva sample. Other tests require using a sample taken through combined nasal and throat swabs, except for persons holding a medical certificate issued by a registered medical practitioner proving that they are unfit to undergo testing using a sample taken through combined nasal and throat swabs because of health reasons.
