Hong Kong Chief Executive John Lee has announced that from Friday, people arriving in the city will have to spend three days in hotel quarantine, instead of the current seven. After their quarantine at a designated hotel, arrivals will undergo “medical surveillance” for four more days and while they can go out, go to work, or visit malls, they won't be able to enter high risk places that check vaccine passes, such as bars and restaurants. Such people will be given a "yellow code" on their LeaveHomeSafe app to restrict their movements. People already in quarantine will be able to leave early after three days from today, providing they test negative.
