Second Phase of the Construction Industry COVID-19 Testing Service Scheme (CITS)
2021-03-12

To further strengthen the prevention of virus at construction sites, the Construction Industry Council (CIC) and the Hong Kong Construction Association (HKCA) with the support from the Development Bureau of the HKSAR Government, jointly launched the first phase of “Construction Industry COVID-19 Testing Service Scheme” from 22 December 2020 to 131 March 2021.

 

Upon the completion of the 1st phase, the “Construction Industry COVID-19 Testing Service Scheme 2.0” will be launched from 15 March to 17 April 2021, in which two timely services will be provided to different sites under this Scheme:

 

  1. On-site testing services for larger construction sites (e.g. sites with 100 site staff or above); and
  2. Distribution and collection services of deep throat saliva specimen collection packs for smaller construction sites (e.g. sites with 1-99 site staff).

 

The two services will be subsidised by the CIC, the HKCA and the Development Bureau, which are free of charge. Each site can only apply for one of the above services in accordance with the number of site staff. The decisions of the CIC and the HKCA shall be final.  For any construction site that is interested in participating in this Scheme, its main contractor should complete the following APPLICATION FORM and submit to CIC by email [email protected] for arrangement of the related services. The deadline for application is 31 March 2021.
