Macau.- The Grand Emperor Hotel has announced it will resume operations from October 19 after a two-week closure due to local Covid-19 cases. The venue was inside the so-called red core area as one of the latest Covid-19 cases was detected in a person who stayed at the venue.

Employees and guests were tested and quarantined in the property for two weeks. Last Sunday testing was carried out and no new cases were detected. The company said Macau’s Health Bureau had confirmed that the hotel was not the source of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Despite the food and drink operations reopening, the gaming floor will remain closed as the area is still being disinfected.

Authorities in Macau have recently announced that entertainment venues were allowed to reopen as no new Covid-19 cases have been detected. The city has now lifted its “immediate pandemic prevention” alert. Health authorities have carried out new mass testing to exclude any potential Covid-19 cases.

Zhuhai to ease travel restrictions with Macau

Authorities in Zhuhai have eased restrictions for people who have travelled from Macau and will no longer require a 14-day quarantine. Ho Iat Seng, Macau’s chief executive, also said people who plan to travel outside Macau would no longer need to present a negative Covid-19 test issued within 24 hours of departure.

During the first week of October, authorities had announced that the mandatory 14-day quarantine for visitors from Macau was going to be kept in place due to new Covid-19 cases in Macau in the past week.
