A total of six hotels will operate as a designated quarantine hotel from December 18 to solely receive travellers arriving from foreign places for compulsory quarantine, the Government announced today.

The six hotels are Dorsett Tsuen Wan, Dorsett Wanchai, Mojo Nomad Aberdeen Harbour, Regal Oriental Hotel, The Kimberley Hotel and The Kowloon Hotel.

The Government said it will gazette the specifications under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Requirements & Directions) (Business & Premises) Regulation (Cap 599F) and the Prevention & Control of Disease (Regulation of Cross-boundary Conveyances & Travellers) Regulation (Cap 599H).

The Designated Quarantine Hotel Scheme will be fully implemented on December 22 when all 36 designated quarantine hotels must solely be receiving travellers arriving from foreign places who need to undergo compulsory quarantine.

Having regard to the lower risk of travellers arriving from a place in China other than Hong Kong, if they opt to undergo compulsory quarantine in hotels, they should choose a non-designated hotel.

To further reduce the contact between people subject to quarantine and the local community, the Government will amend the conditions of the compulsory quarantine orders.

Starting from December 18, all travellers arriving in Hong Kong by air and to be accommodated at designated hotels are required to board the designated transport arranged by the Government to proceed to their hotels.

There are five routes for the designated transport service, covering Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and New Territories daily from 2pm to 11pm.

The designated transport will convey the travellers from the airport and the Holding Centre for Test Result at the Rambler Garden Hotel to the designated quarantine hotels.
