Hong Kong authorities allowed to resume cruises at the end of July
Hong Kong authorities will allow cruise ship tours to resume from late July without calling other ports.
According to TASS, this was announced at a press conference on Wednesday by the secretary (minister) of commerce and economic development of the local government, Edward Yau.
"All passengers and crew members must be fully vaccinated against covid," he said. Before boarding the ship, travelers will be required to provide negative results from OCP tests taken within 48 hours of sailing.
According to the minister, the occupancy rate of courts should not exceed 50%. The liners will also have to return to Hong Kong if there is any suspicion of coronavirus. There will be medical personnel on board, and some cabins are supposed to be allocated for quarantine rooms.
Sea cruises in Hong Kong were completely suspended in February last year due to the pandemic.
