Early Testing and Detection of COVID-19

As some people infected with COVID-19 only have mild symptoms, members of the public are advised to seek medical advice promptly when feeling unwell (even if having very mild symptoms only), so that appropriate diagnosis and management can be given at the earliest possible time.

Apart from the accident and emergency departments of public hospitals and general out-patient clinics (GOPCs), you may also visit private clinics and hospitals. You can proactively make a request to your doctor for testing when there is any suspicion. The Department of Health (DH) provides free testing of COVID-19 for private doctors.

Service Arrangement

In response to the latest situation of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), services under the Department of Health have been gradually adjusted starting from 29 January 2020.

For the new service arrangement of the 18 Elderly Health Centres starting from 30 March 2020, please click here.

In order to enhance infection control measures including minimising pedestrian flows and social contacts, the Department of Health (DH) advised that clients' family members and friends should avoid accompanying the clients to visit unless there are special reasons to do so. The DH also advised that no more than one relative/friend may accompany the service user. If you find necessary, please contact the staff in the Centre.
