Addressing Wednesday’s press conference about Macao’s novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the Health Bureau’s (SSM) Control of Communicable Diseases and Surveillance of Diseases Department Coordinator Leong Iek Hou said that in response to the possible rising number of visitors to Macao following Guangdong lifting the quarantine, her bureau has come up with new guidelines on COVID-19 prevention and control measures for the city’s retail outlets and restaurants, according to which all staff members must wear a facemask while working.
Leong pointed out that the two sectors’ employees face a high risk of COVID-19 infection as they are in touch with customers and other people for a long time every day.
No local COVID-19 case has been confirmed in Macao for 108 consecutive days.
Meanwhile, Lau Fong Chi from the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) pointed out that today is the last day of the special ferry link between Macao and Hong Kong’s airport. Lau also said that her office will relaunch its mainland promotion campaigns for local tourism.
