More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

Catering premises checked

The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department initiated procedures on prosecution against 25 catering business operators suspected of breaching anti-epidemic regulations during the Easter holidays.   The department stepped up inspections and conducted joint operations with Police in various districts from April 2 to 6.   A total of 241 catering premises were inspected during the joint operations, and 2,175 catering premises and 496 other premises were checked by the department on its own.   Of the 25 catering business operators suspected of breaching the Prevention & Control of Disease (Requirements & Directions) (Business & Premises) Regulation, 15 were related to a failure to ensure that customers scan the LeaveHomeSafe QR code or register their names, contact numbers and the dates and times of their visits before they are allowed to enter the premises.   The remaining were related to the distance or partition between tables, mask-wearing, and the failure to arrange for all staff to undergo a COVID-19 test once every 14 days.   During the operations, the department also initiated procedures on prosecution against an operator of a bathhouse which was not closed as required by the regulation, and another person for operating food businesses without a licence.   The department will step up inspections at food premises across the city and conduct joint operations with Police when necessary to ensure food business operators and members of the public comply with relevant regulations.
