Social distancing extended to Jul 27

July 12, 2022

The Government announced today that the existing social distancing measures will be extended until July 27.


The number of daily new cases in Hong Kong has been staying at four-digit figures recently, with nearly 1,000 infected people now being hospitalised for treatment.


In view of the latest epidemic development and to balance the need for social and economic activities, the Government decided to extend the existing social distancing measures for the next 14-day cycle without any relaxation at this juncture.


All catering premises and scheduled premises are allowed to continue operating subject to strict compliance with the requirements including use of the Vaccine Pass and LeaveHomeSafe app.


Other requirements, such as mask-wearing for citizens in transport carriers and specified public places, as well as prohibition of group gatherings in public places, also remain in force.


The Government will closely monitor the epidemic development in a holistic manner and prudently consider the social distancing measures for the subsequent stage, with a view to maintaining society’s daily operation while preventing the risk of an epidemic rebound.
