Latest Highlights
  • Considering the balance between infection risks and resumption of economic and livelihood impetus, the Government decided to cancel the arrangement of issuing isolation orders to infected persons according to the Prevention and Control of Disease Regulation (Cap. 599A) from January 30.
  • The evaluation criteria for COVID-19 nucleic acid test results will be adjusted with effect from 16 January 2023. Test results issued from that day with a Ct value of 35 or above would be regarded as negative for purposes other than clinical management. The Centre for Health Protection of the Department of Health would not regard persons with results of nucleic acid tests at a Ct value of 35 or above as confirmed cases starting from 0.00am on the same day. Relevant persons would not be issued with isolation orders (i.e. no home isolation would be required, nor would they be sent to community isolation facility). The above adjusted criteria also apply to free and self-paid tests conducted by community testing centres/stations, and the self-paid negative test reports can also be used for cross-boundary travelling purposes.
