Hong Kong Speeds Reopening at Bars, Beaches as Covid Eases
(Bloomberg) — Hong Kong is accelerating reopening plans as Covid cases drop, easing mask-wearing rules and allowing more leisure venues to reopen despite continued circulation of the pathogen.
The latest measures mean people will no longer have to wear masks while exercising outdoors and will allow beaches and swimming pools to reopen starting May 5. Two weeks later on May 19, dining-in at restaurants will be extended to midnight, while bars will be authorized to stay open until 2 a.m., Chief Executive Carrie Lam said Tuesday at a briefing.
