Hong Kong ends quarantine exemptions for finance executives

RIYADH: Hong Kong will end quarantine exemptions for executives from the banking, insurance, securities and futures sectors as of November 12, Bloomberg reported citing Hong Kong’s government on Monday. 

Consular and diplomatic officers will need to self-isolate at designated quarantine hotels, except for consuls general or represented as an equivalent or higher level that are allowed to be in home quarantine.

Hong Kong would soon remove exemptions allowing some people to skip hotel quarantine to bolster the odds of China opening up to cross-border travel, chief executive Carrie Lam said.
