Hong Kong is reducing travelers’ hotel quarantine time from seven days to three starting Friday.
“The seven-day hotel quarantine will be changed to three days in a quarantine hotel plus four days of home health care,” CEO John Lee said at a press conference on Monday.
After the end of the hotel quarantine, travelers can stay at home or at the hotel for four days of observation. During this period, people will be able to leave their place of residence, but they will not be able to enter “places where vaccine gaps are actively checked,” Li said in Cantonese.
This includes bars, pubs, gyms and beauty salons.
Shares of Cathay Pacific Airlines in Hong Kong jumped 2.83% after the announcement.
