The Hong Kong government announced the extension of restricted movement between people in Hong Kong and other places to last until 31 December, as well as the implementation of corresponding boundary control measures or compulsory quarantine measures on inbound travellers.

According to a press release by the government of Hong Kong on the latest legislative amendments dated 29 September, directions and specifications under the Prevention and Control of Disease Ordinance state that all residents from Macao, mainland China and Taiwan entering Hong Kong will be quarantined for 14 days.

The decision was taken due to the development of the COVID-19 epidemic situation.

A spokesman for the Hong Kong Food and Health Bureau pointed out that extending the expiry dates of the relevant regulations did not imply that the restrictions currently imposed under those regulations would be maintained until the corresponding expiry dates.

Macao has not recorded a new COVID-19 case for 103 days, while no local case has been confirmed in 192 days.

Hong Kong recorded 5,144 cases with 105 deaths. In Hong Kong, 4,885 patients have recovered from the epidemic.
