Hong Kong lawmakers, business leaders call for cutting hotel quarantine to 3 days

Politicians, business leaders welcome interim measures suggested by incoming leader John Lee as part of city’s gradually border reopening

Hong Kong lawmakers and business leaders have suggested reducing the hotel quarantine period for inbound travellers from seven to three days after incoming leader John Lee Ka-chiu proposed several interim measures for reopening the city’s borders.

One business leader on Thursday also called for the gradual resumption of exchanges with mainland China, starting with several cities based in the south.

The remarks came after Lee said he was considering several options for opening up Hong Kong in a recent exclusive interview with the Post.
