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

Social distancing rules kept

The Government today announced that social distancing measures currently in place will be extended until June 23.   The requirements and restrictions applicable to catering businesses and scheduled premises, as well as the requirements for group gatherings and mask wearing will be maintained.   Noting that local cases with the N501Y mutant strain have been recorded recently and the source of infection has yet to be identified, the Food & Health Bureau said it is not appropriate to relax social distancing measures at the moment.   The bureau added that in the face of the challenges posed by mutant strains, there is a pressing need to get vaccinated.   Taking into account the epidemic development, the Government will continue to adjust social distancing measures under the vaccine bubble principle.   In addition to the protection received, people who have completed the vaccination course would also be subject to more lenient requirements under the various social distancing measures.
