Hong Kong Ends Last Covid Curbs in Bid to Revive Finance Hub
(Bloomberg) — Hong Kong will end some of its last major Covid rules, scrapping gathering limits, vaccination checks and testing for travelers in a sweeping overhaul of policies aimed at reviving its reputation as a global financial center.
There will be no cap on the number of people who can gather in public, and the vaccine pass for entry to venues will also be dropped starting Thursday, Chief Executive John Lee said Wednesday. Close contacts of Covid-positive people won’t need to quarantine, and limits on the number of people who can sit together in restaurants — 12 — and bars —six — will be lifted.
