New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

Inbound traveller jab rules adjusted

The Government announced today that COVID-19 vaccination requirements for inbound travellers will be adjusted from October 29.   Under the adjusted requirements, inbound travellers aged 12 to 17 who have received one dose of the BioNTech vaccine at least 14 days ago are deemed to have complied with the requirements of completing the COVID-19 vaccination course under boarding and quarantine requirements.   From October 29, Hong Kong residents of this age range who hold a recognised vaccination record of one BioNTech vaccine dose and have stayed in Group A specified places on the day of boarding for/arrival in Hong Kong or during the 21 days before that day are allowed to board flights for Hong Kong.   Upon arrival in Hong Kong, they are still required to undergo a 21-day quarantine in a designated quarantine hotel with compulsory testing on the 26th day of arrival.   If the relevant people have stayed in Group B specified places on the day of boarding for/arrival at Hong Kong or during the 14 days before that day, they are required to undergo a 14-day quarantine in a designated hotel and compulsory testing on the 16th and 19th days of arrival.   If they have only stayed in Group C specified places on the day of boarding for/arrival in Hong Kong or during the 14 days before that day, they are required to undergo a seven-day quarantine in a designated hotel and compulsory testing on the ninth, 12th, 16th and 19th days of arrival.   The adjusted requirements also allow Hong Kong residents who have received one dose of a recognised COVID-19 vaccine and hold a recognised vaccination record to board for Hong Kong from Group A specified places if they are certified by a medical practitioner for being unfit to receive the second dose on health grounds.   Inbound travellers from Group A specified places must also present at boarding the aforementioned certificate issued by a medical practitioner who is registered in Hong Kong or at the place where the vaccine was administered, in addition to other requirements applicable to this group.   Upon arrival in Hong Kong, they are still required to undergo a 21-day quarantine in a designated hotel and compulsory testing on the 26th day of arrival.   Those who arrive from Group B or Group C specified places must undergo compulsory quarantine and testing in accordance with requirements applicable to non-fully-vaccinated people. In other words, they have to undergo 21 or 14 days of compulsory quarantine in a designated hotel respectively without any shortening of the quarantine period.   Click here for details.
