In response to the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the government earlier required restaurants to increase the fresh air delivery rate to at least 6 air changes per hour by the end of April.
The chairperson of the Working Group on Restaurant Ventilation Regulations, Yuen Pak Leong, said that 13,000 restaurants have met the relevant requirements so far, and about 4,000 restaurants are applying for extension, that is, 90% of restaurants have completed or are about to complete the relevant requirements.
However, he said that there are still 1,000 to 2,000 restaurants that have not yet met the requirements, so the FEHD will write a "reminder".
The government earlier required that restaurant licensees must register on the FEHD website for at least six air changes per hour between seats on their premises on or before April 30.

There are currently about 18,000 food and beverage premises in Hong Kong.
Yuan Bailiang said that at present, 13,000 have submitted application forms and have completed 6 ventilation requirements, for example, air purifiers have been installed.
In addition, nearly 4,000 restaurants are applying for extensions.
He estimated that the relevant restaurants have purchased the relevant equipment but are still waiting for delivery.
Yuan Bailiang said that 90% of restaurants have completed or are about to complete the relevant requirements.
However, there are still 1,000 to 2,000 restaurants that have not yet met the requirements. Therefore, the FEHD will send a letter to remind them and confirm whether they are still open.
He said that under the new requirements for the ventilation rate of the catering premises and the vaccine bubble, even after Mother's Day, there is no large-scale transmission chain in the community for the time being, so I am grateful for everyone to cooperate in the difficult time.
