Hong Kong will reduce the mandatory hotel quarantine for overseas arrivals to three days from a week, the city's leader said. The southern Chinese city remains one of the few places in the world, to require a quarantine to guard against travelers spreading COVID-19 to the local population.

The policy taking effect will be Hong Kong's shortest quarantine for arrivals since the pandemic began. Hong Kong leader John Lee said arriving travelers must quarantine three days in a designated hotel, then undergo four days of medical surveillance during which their movements will be restricted via the use of a health code system.
