They must also wait for the COVID-19 test results at the designated location. (It takes more than a few hours)
👉Passengers who take early morning and morning flights to Hong Kong will collect deep throat saliva samples at the temporary sample collection center and will stay in the center to wait for the results. Passengers who arrive in Hong Kong in the afternoon or evening, because their testing will not be completed on the same day, the Department of Health will arrange for them to take a special bus to the waiting test results center in the hotel to wait for the test results and stay overnight.
👉 Generally speaking, you only need to stay at that hotel for one night, and after the test result is available the next day, you will be allowed to leave the hotel and return to your hotel immediately.
👉The Department of Health also requested that on the twelfth day of the quarantine period, a sample of deep throat saliva was collected for another virus test. The person concerned is required to collect the deep throat saliva samples by themselves according to the instructions, and then return the samples to one of the collection clinics on the morning of the collection day through their relatives and friends or the on- site sample delivery service .
