[14:32] Hong Kong and the mainland began to clear customs on the 8th of this month, and more than 27,000 local cross-border students will be able to resume face-to-face classes after the Lunar New Year.
The Education Bureau has confirmed that cross-border secondary school students can come to Hong Kong without a quota in the second week of February at the earliest and resume normal classes. The resumption date for cross-border students in elementary schools and kindergartens will be in late February.

Withdrawal of the quarantine order｜1.30 diagnosed sick leave requires a doctor's note and the number of days depends on the condition and type of work
[11:50] The isolation order for people infected with the new crown will be canceled next week. If employees are diagnosed and want to take sick leave, they need to have a doctor's certificate.
Zheng Zhiwen, president of the Medical Association, said on a radio program today (27th) that the number of days of sick leave will depend on the illness and type of work of the confirmed person. For example, nursing staff or food handlers should have longer sick leave.
After the cancellation of the quarantine order, he believes that there are already many private doctors who have diagnosed patients with the new crown, and he is not worried that it will be difficult to cope.
Liu Yulong advocated the cancellation of the outdoor mask order in the middle and late February, and the quick test of teachers and students in the north to replace the nucleic acid test
[10:58] The new crown epidemic is stabilizing, and various epidemic prevention measures are gradually lifted, but the mask order is still revoked indefinitely.
Liu Yulong, a government expert consultant and chairman of the Scientific Committee on Vaccine-Preventable Diseases, suggested on a radio program this morning (27th) that the mask order can be gradually lifted in mid-to-late February.
He believes that after the Lunar New Year holiday, one or two more weeks of observation, if there is no large-scale outbreak, the epidemic prevention measures that are still in place can be gradually withdrawn, including the need to not wear masks in places with outdoor air circulation, cancel the daily quick test for teachers and students, etc. Hong Kong people can also use quick tests to replace nucleic acid tests when they go north. The indoor mask order can be canceled around March, and the wearing of masks in hospitals and institutions should wait until the end.
He believes that the removal of masks will not cause the epidemic to rebound. Influenza may come and go with the seasons, and one must gradually adapt. "Removing masks will prevent tsunamis."
