Hong Kong will start to ease strict COVID restrictions starting on Feb. 18, re-opening sports and entertainment facilities and extending dining hours, Health Secretary Sophia Chan said on Wednesday, as the city logged a steady decline in daily cases.
Chan said catering businesses would be able to operate until 10 pm, granting them an additional four hours. Beauty salons, theme parks, cinemas and all sports facilities would be allowed to resume with conditions in place.
“We are cautiously optimistic on the pandemic,” Chan told a news conference, adding that she hoped the city could quickly get back on its feet.
New cases have fallen to below 30 a day from over 80 at the end of January.
Hong Kong Disneyland closed for the 3rd time back in December of 2020 due to the rise in COVID-19 cases. With the Government easing restrictions does this mean we can expect to see Hong Kong Disneyland reopen on the 18th?
No official word has been posted to the HK Disneyland website at this time. We will closely monitor the reopening and share details here on Chip and Co as soon as we have them!
