Prevention and Control of Disease (Prohibition on Group Gathering) Regulation.

With a view to combating the COVID-19 epidemic, the Government will impose stringent measures

and prohibit any group gathering of more than four persons in any public place.  Stay at home,

avoid crowded places and maintain social distancing.


Updated information on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Government extends social distancing measures


In view of the latest public health risk assessment, in particular the higher risks brought about by activities conducted without wearing masks as well as various social activities as shown in recent cases, at present, it is necessary to extend social distancing measures implemented under Cap. 599F, Cap. 599G and Cap. 599I, including requiring the cessation of dine-in services at catering businesses during specific periods, continuing to require closure of scheduled premises, as well as requiring any person to wear mask at all times when entering or being present in any public place.


The Government strongly urges the public to stay at home as much as possible, go out less often unless necessary, and avoid dining out and unnecessary social activities (including private gatherings), to fight the epidemic together without letting down one's guard, in order to reduce community transmission so as to cut the community transmission chain.  Maintaining good personal and environmental hygiene at all times is key to the prevention of infection and the spread of the disease in the community, as well as to the alleviation of the enormous burden currently put on the healthcare system.
