undergo an antigen as well as PCR test on arrival, in addition to a
mandatory seven-day stay at a designated quarantine hotel as part of the
government’s “test and hold” programme.
The city authorities will be raising the threshold for suspending its
incoming flights with infected Covid-19 passengers from three to five
people. The length of time that flight routes will be banned will be
reduced from seven to five days.

Disneyland reopened on April, its first in months since the Omicron
outbreak hit the city.
Venues including gyms, theme parks, beauty parlours and movie theatres have also reopened after a four-month closure.
