HONG KONG TO OPEN POOLS, BARS, AND THEME PARKS AFTER COVID-19 MASS TESTING SCHEME

Hong Kong will reopen bars, swimming pools, and theme parks from Friday (Sep 18) as it relaxes COVID-19 restrictions after the testing of nearly 2 million people in a program organized by the Chinese government found 42 cases.

The announcement by the city’s health secretary, Sophia Chan, comes days after the Chinese special administrative region reopened gyms and entertainment venues and increased the number of people allowed to gather to four.

The ban on gatherings of more than four people remains in place as does a ban on people visiting public beaches as authorities called for vigilance.

“We appeal to the public to not be complacent and let down their guard,” Chan said.
