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

Special hospital visits enhanced

The Hospital Authority today announced that the special visiting arrangement will be extended to child and adolescent psychiatric patients of public hospitals from November 26.   The extended arrangement is applicable for visiting psychiatric patients aged under 18 who have been transferred out of observation areas.   One to two visits will be arranged for a family member in a designated time slot each week with due consideration to the patient’s clinical condition and ward operation.   Ward staff will schedule the visits and begin calling the patients’ family members in the next few days.   Visitors are required to have completed two-doses of COVID-19 vaccination for more than 14 days.   They can scan the Hospital Visit QR code found on the authority’s webpage and the HA Go mobile app to fill in the health declaration form within 24 hours before the visit, and must show the QR code to ward staff.   The authority hopes the community can understand and comply with the visiting arrangements under the current epidemic situation, noting that its hospitals will continue to facilitate compassionate and video visiting as far as practicable.
