TRAVEL ALERT - Hong Kong now testing for Coronavirus all incoming travelers from Europe and USA

Starting from April 13th, all asymptomatic inbound travelers arriving at the International Airport of Hong Kong from Europe and the United States are required to proceed to the Temporary Specimen Collection Center (TSCC) set up by the HKSAR government's Department

of Health at the AsiaWorld-Expo to test for COVID-19. After the collection of the samples all passengers must wait for the test results there.

If tested positive, arrangements will be made to admit them to hospital as soon as possible for treatment, while the close contacts

who traveled with them will be sent to designated quarantine centers.

Those testing negative can either go home or to a designated place to continue completion of the 14-day compulsory quarantine.
