Temperature screening at HKG

Hi all
Slightly off topic bus does anyone know if HKG is still conducting passenger
temperature screening?
I have a nasty cold/flu and tossing up whether to travel to Hong Kong tomorrow.
don't want to end up in quarantine.
Cheers

If they do catch you with a fever, you get a slip that you have to take to a doctor to sign off.

Take medicine 2hrs before you arrive at the airport to lower your fever

It is actually quite off-topic. Moving thread to HKG forum.

Yes. As do many, *many* airports across Asia.

Where do they do the temp check? I went through HKIA twice in November, and didn't see any controls, but maybe I just overlooked it.

From HKTB website:
Upon your arrival at Hong Kong International Airport or at a boundary control point, automatic sensors will take your temperature. If it is considered high, you may be required to participate in a quick health check.
There are monitoring stations equipped with thermal-imaging scanners that passengers walk past. You won't necessarily know it, unless you get pulled aside.
