Hong Kong to further relax restrictions on restaurants, reopen beaches

Topics Hong Kong | Coronavirus

Hong Kong will reopen public beaches and increase the number of people allowed to sit together in bars and restaurants starting Friday as the city continues to unwind strict COVID-19 rules put in place in July. Sophia Chan, the Chinese special administrative region’s health secretary, said that six people would be allowed to sit together in restaurants, up from four.

Bars will be able to seat four people together, up from two. All dining facilities will be able to stay open until 2am, later than the current midnight closing.
