Social distancing rules maintained

The Government today announced it will maintain most of the social distancing measures in place for 14 days until October 13.   Meanwhile, the maximum number of people allowed per banquet in catering businesses adopting Type D mode of operation will be relaxed to 240.   Noting the high transmissibility of the mutant strains and the relatively low vaccination rate of the elderly who will be subject to extremely high risks of serious illness and death if there is a fifth wave of the epidemic, the Food & Environmental Bureau said most of the social distancing measures have to be maintained.   Click here for the latest measures.
