The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government on Tuesday announced the decision to loosen social distancing measures due to the abating COVID-19 epidemic, but restrictions over inbound visitors will continue.
This will be effective for two weeks from Friday, according to a government statement.
Hong Kong will also raise the cap on the number of people at places of worship from half of the total capacity to 80 percent.
But public group gatherings of more than 50 people will still be prohibited.
Besides, the HKSAR is also working with Guangdong Province and the Macao SAR to relax quarantine measures for some travelers of the three places.
