Alvis Lo Iek Long, a clinical director of the public Conde de São Januário Hospital Centre, said Monday that racers from Hong Kong competing in next month’s Macau Grand Prix (MGP) will have to undergo 14 days of quarantine and medical observation at one of the government’s “quarantine hotels” upon arrival in Macao.
During the 14-day quarantine period, each of them will have to undergo at least two nucleic acid tests (NATs).
Lo said that therefore they would pose an “extremely low” risk to a possible COVID-19 community transmission in Macao.
Lo reassured residents that they will not need to worry about the Hong Kong racers as the neighbouring special administrative region’s COVID-19 epidemic has eased.
