Hong Kong to ease steel grip on Covid restrictions

A flight ban on services to Hong Kong from nine countries, including the US and the UK, will be lifted from April 1, while mandatory quarantine will be halved for travellers who test negative on arrival, announced Hong Kong’s chief executive Carrie Lam this morning.

Hong Kong will ease inbound restrictions from April 1

Hong Kong’s plans to begin easing out of her Covid travel restrictions – recognised as some of the most stringent in the world – will come with progressive relaxation on social distancing regulations. The latter is expected to begin from April 21, provided there is no rebound in infections.

According to a Bloomberg report, Lam shared plans to allow as many as four people to dine out at restaurants for dinner, and to reopen gyms, massage parlours and public entertainment centres.
