      The Ministry of Health (MOH) is investigating likely COVID-19 transmission in the vicinity of Redhill as COVID-19 viral fragments were detected in wastewater samples collected from some blocks. Epidemiological investigations are ongoing to determine the source of transmission. 

2.        
In order to disrupt any wider, undetected community transmission, MOH will conduct mandatory COVID-19 testing for all residents of 81, 82 and 83 Redhill Lane, and 87, 88, 89 and 90 Redhill Close. Testing is optional for those who have tested negative for COVID-19 infection from 18 June onwards. In the event that a positive COVID-19 case is detected, MOH will isolate the case, identify all close contacts, test and quarantine them to protect the community from further transmission. 

3.       
To detect possible asymptomatic cases in the community, MOH will also conduct voluntary COVID-19 testing for visitors and those who have interacted with residents of 81, 82 and 83 Redhill Lane, and 87, 88, 89, and 90 Redhill Close between 6 and 20 June 2021. We encourage these individuals to come forward for testing. 

4.      
Both mandatory and voluntary testing will be conducted at the pavilion at 84A Redhill Lane and void deck of 89 Redhill Close from 21 June to 23 June. Please refer to the table below for details.
