Queensway Plaza’s Ippudo, Diamond Hill’s Itamomo Among Premises With Compulsory Testing Notice

The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) on June 1 issued a compulsory COVID-19 testing notice for 47 premises in Hong Kong.

The premises include buildings in Tsuen Wan, Sham Shui Po, Ma On Shan, Tsuen Wan, Chai Wan, Tai Po, Tseung Kwan O, Tuen Mun, and Kwun Tong. It also covers Café Paradise on King’s Road, North Point, Chiu Ka Seafood Restaurant in Kai Ching Estate, Itamomo in Diamond Hill, and Ippudo in Queensway Plaza.

Those who had visited the premises on dates specified in the notice are required to get a nucleic acid test for COVID-19 regardless if they are fully vaccinated. However, those who tested positive for COVID-19 in the past three months no longer need to comply with the compulsory testing.

The government has set up mobile specimen collection stations across the city to implement the tests.
