For the Red Code Zones, immediate nucleic acid tests (NAT) will be carried out on the spot. NATs will also be done daily. Apart from health workers stationed at the area, no one else is allowed to go in or out. Residents are only allowed to perform basic activities, such as receiving food at designated locations so as to enforce a fully restricted closed system.
The health codes of people in the Yellow Code Zone will be converted to yellow, and immediate NATs will also be carried out on the spot. The first NAT will be completed within 24 hours, and further testing will be carried out as needed. People in the area will not be allowed to go out until the first NAT is completed. Other restrictions include not being allowed to leave Macao, and a minimum of 14 days of close health monitoring and self-health management.
The centre stated that in accordance with the prevention and control mechanism of zoning, a life support team will follow up the daily needs of residents in the cordoned area. The department will be responsible for providing daily life and dietary support. Elderly people living alone, persons in difficulties, or those in need of assistance psychologically or spiritually, are directed to call the Social Welfare Bureau hotline 2826 1126.
