The Hong Kong government announced today that the quarantine requirements for those arriving in Hong Kong from mainland China, Macao and Taiwan have been extended until 7 September, according to Macao Daily.

Restrictions imposed on general travellers will be extended by a month, until 7 September, which was previously to end on 7 August. Under this extension, people will still undergo 14-day compulsory quarantine.

Facemasks will also be made mandatory at all Hong Kong indoor public spaces – malls and building lobbies included – starting Thursday, according to RTHK, as the government steps up measures in containing the spread of COVID-19 in Hong Kong. Facemasks have also been mandatory on Hong Kong’s public transport since last week.
