Government maintains most social distancing measures in Hong Kong

The Government will extend most existing social distancing measures for 14 days till 27 October 2021 in Hong Kong. "The internationally prevalent mutant strains have high transmissibility. Despite the extremely stringent measures implemented in Hong Kong to prevent importation of cases, a handful of local cases may still emerge. To prevent an epidemic outbreak in the community, we need to maintain most of the social distancing measures currently in place," said a spokesman for the Food and Health Bureau. The Government continues to call on persons who are not yet vaccinated, especially senior citizens, chronic patients and other immunocompromised persons who face a much higher chance of death after COVID-19 infection, to get vaccinated as early as possible for better self-protection before the fifth wave strikes Hong Kong.
