Citizens from Macau and mainland China will still be required to quarantine on entering HK even if they have negative Covid-19 test results.
Hong Kong.- Citizens from Macau, Mainland China and Taiwan will have to continue to mandatory quarantine when entering Hong Kong, as authorities extend the requisite once again.
Since Covid-19 cases continue to rise in Hong Kong, authorities have prolonged the measure at least until September 7.
The SAR region reported 118 new diagnosed cases on Wednesday, up to a total of 2,250.
The measure had already been extended at the beginning of this month until August 7. Macau citizens are required to quarantine after showing a negative Covid-19 test result not older than seven days to enter the city.
This is in spite of the negotiations taking place to create a “health code system” for Macau and Guangdong residents to enter HK without going through the 14-day quarantine period.
According to the Macau Statistics and Census Bureau, Hongkongers made 7.35 million trips to Macau in 2019, accounting for 19 per cent of arrivals, Casino.org reported.
