In order to take appropriate anti-epidemic measures for candidates applying for the Cambridge English examinations during the period of the novel coronavirus, the Centre hereby makes the following statement:

The Macau Special Administrative Region has entered into a state of immediate prevention, with effect from 3.30pm on 3 August, in relation to risk of a local COVID-19 outbreak. Such risk is evaluated to be extremely high.

The declaration is in accordance with an Executive Order, following an evaluation by Macau’s Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre.

Declaration of the alert status is in a bid to prevent the virus from spreading in the community, thus protecting the safety and the lives of the public.

The status as declared is defined in Provision 3 of Article 8 of the Civil Protection Law.

From 3:30 pm on 3 August 2021, all outbound travelers must hold a proof of negative nucleic acid test within 12 hours. This takes into account the latest arrangements of the Macau government for medical observation of people in newly infected areas. In order to protect candidates, parents, staff and the community, the center has decided to postpone all Cambridge English exams which are scheduled on 6, 7 and 8 August, 2021. The latest examination time will be notified separately depending on the situation. However, depending on the epidemic situation in Macau and the Guangdong Province, if the epidemic situation is not stabilized, the center has the right to change the examination date and time and will notify candidates accordingly.

For the latest situation of the epidemic, please refer to the news released by the Health Bureau of the Macau Special Administrative Region Government. For more updates, please visit:
