    A colleague recently flew into HKG from UK. Had a test. Was taken to quarantine facility. Stayed there for 14 days, with a further test after 7 days. Not allowed out.

    JHK, MOL and their ilk are far from experts, but the media loves a bit of a tussle with the government, and so these stories do the rounds with some form of credibility attached to them.

    Esselle. Was your colleague a HK resident otherwise, they would have not been allowed to enter HK?

    And, do you know if they tested positive on arrival?

    Arrivals from 10 countries, if HK residents, have to have hotel accommodation booked in designated hotels for 14 days. The UK is not one of these, they would have been able to quarantine at home

    His wife is HK resident and it was in their own apartment.

    My point, though, is that there is no wiggle room, and airport and airline bosses don’t call the shots.
