Hong Kong has announced a minor relaxation of its social distancing measures after cases in the region dropped for seven days, its Secretary for Food and Health announced.
Professor Sophia Chan announced the news after there were no community outbreaks or untraceable cases in the past three days.
The changes mean that, from October 23:
- Local tour groups can resume with up to 30 people
- Wedding banquets, conferences and meetings can take place with up to 50 people
- Team sports can resume in swimming pools
- Live performances can resume in museums
However, Hong Kong's four-person rule, midnight curfew and mandatory mask-wearing regulations have been extended until October 29.
Chan said the department continues to prepare for the possibility of a fourth wave of the virus.
