Hong Kong will shorten its quarantine requirement for inbound travelers by a week, but extended a ban on people coming from eight countries as a
record number of infections stresses the city’s infrastructure.
The shorter quarantine period will begin from Feb. 5, and will see travelers stay in a hotel for 14 days and then undertake seven days of self monitoring, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said at a briefing on Thursday. People will be able to go outside during that final week, but there are two days on which compulsory testing will be undertaken.
