One of the domestic workers was found to carry the L452R mutant strain of the coronavirus while the seaman carried the N501Y variant.

All tested positive on arrival at Hong Kong Airport although only one of the Indonesians had symptoms.

Friday was the 12th consecutive day that no local case was reported in Hong Kong. Yesterday, not a single case was recorded, either local or imported.


But in the past 14 days, 32 cases were recorded, three of which were linked local cases. All the local infections were found to carry a rare strain of the N501Y mutation whose source is yet to be identified.

If no local case is again detected today, Macau could start talking to Hong Kong authorities on relaxing cross-boundary travel between their territories, including the possibility of allowing quarantine-free entry to vaccinated residents.

Currently, HK residents who enter Macau must quarantine for 14 days

Macau has previously said that it will initiate the talks if no local case is found in Hong Kong for 14 consecutive days.

Macau authorities continue to ban most non-residents from entering, unless they are related to its residents, along with students and essential workers.

Hong Kong residents can enter Macau if they have not been to any other places in the previous 21 days. They must also present a negative Covid-19 test result from the past 24 hours, and must quarantine for 14 days.

In Hong Kong, vaccinated travelers from Macau are required to undergo compulsory quarantine for seven days at a designated home or  hotel, and undergo self-monitoring for a further seven days.

They will be tested during the quarantine, and again on the 12th day after arrival.

Unvaccinated people must self-isolate for 14 days and self-monitor for another week. During quarantine they must undergo three tests and then again on the 16th and 19th day after arrival.
