Quarantine

Quarantine is usually spent at home or a residential address, but arrivals may be placed in a Hong Kong government quarantine centre. Family members of someone who tests positive, or those who have been in close contact, will also be required to go in to a government quarantine centre. Hong Kong residents who have been to Daegu or Gyeongsangbuk-do in Korea; Iran; or Emilia-Romagna, Lombardo or Veneto in Italy within the last 14 days will be allocated a government quarantine facility.
For all quarantine arrangements in Hong Kong:
You are not allowed to leave your designated quarantine location for 14 days. This means you are also unable to leave Hong Kong for the duration of the quarantine.
You are not able to serve your 14 day quarantine in a hotel.
If you are allocated a government quarantine centre, you may be asked to contribute around £20 (HK$200) per night towards the cost.
Items that can be taken in to government quarantine are restricted. There is no smoking allowed and no alcohol. Depending on your centre, facilities may be basic: there may be no fridge and no air-conditioning.
If you are quarantined at your home address you will be expected to activate sharing of your real-time location with the Hong Kong government, or be tagged electronically.
If you are arriving in Hong Kong from Europe and the US, during an initial trial of the technology, you will be issued with a bluetooth-enabled wristband which will be activated at the airport and linked to a mobile app ‘StayHomeSafe’ on your phone.
Arrivals from other destinations may be issued with non-bluetooth wristbands.
The bluetooth-enabled wristbands will alert the authorities if the wearer leaves home with or without their phone.
Failure to comply with the quarantine conditions may result in you being immediately taken to Government quarantine facilities. You could face a six month prison sentence and a substantial fine.
