The measure was due to end in December but has been extended until March 2021 due to a continued rise in Covid-19 cases.
Hong Kong.- Authorities in Hong Kong have extended until March 2021 the requirement of a 14-day quarantine for visitors arriving from Macau, mainland China and Taiwan, as well as all overseas arrivals.
The measure had been due to expire in December but has been extended due to an increase in Covid-19 cases in several cities.
The extension was made official on Wednesday, with a publication in the city’s Official Gazette.
Now Hong Kong ID holders that qualify for the city’s so-called ‘Return2hk’ system are exempt from the extended quarantine rule, but any Hong Kong ID holders working in Macau will have to quarantine when entering Macau.
Asia is currently living what health experts are calling a “fourth wave” of Covid-19 infections.
