Not much impact for me so far. I work at home, as does my wife. Thankfully our kids are not school age yet, so although their playgroups are cancelled, playgroups are only a couple of hours (parents attend) so it's really no different to normal. It's a bit sad the kids aren't seeing their friends much but we're spending less time in playgrounds and more time out on nature walks away from crowds, so making the most of it. Good time of year for outdoor walks, too.
Kinda thankful I don't live on the island, we don't have many masks. Since we're in the middle of nowhere it's not such a problem except for when we need to head to TST for an appointment or something. Feel a bit sad for those that feel trapped indoors, my family by sheer luck (for the want of a better word) have it better than most.
I just realized that my car's licence expires in a couple of days but the licensing office has suspended walk in applications and the next available appt is in March! As per their site, apps received by post are processed within 10 working days so obviously I'll be taking this route.
I'm sure, during normal circumstances, I can't drive an unlicensed vehicle but would anyone know if the authorities , for instance police , would make reservations if I'm caught?
Living in a village in yl, I'm heavily reliant on my car for running errands.
Ring them first to make sure they still do it... we use the one in Tuen Mun now....

As I have no children living at home, life is mostly unchanged- I still go to the office as it's too boring to work from home and today I actually got to visit a client! Woo hoo! But then, another client had a positive corona virus in its office so that company will all be working from home for the next two weeks as surely some other lucky people will test positive- my main contact is working from SG, can't blame him.
And Peng Chau has been immune from many shortages and no extra hiking traffic that I have noticed so can go mask-free until you get on the ferry (where a surprising number of Chinese actually go unmasked along with about 50 percent of gweilos). But no one wants to go out for lunch anymore so I go alone...they all bring from home to avoid potential virus contact- that hot pot case did the trick, should be hundreds of restaurants out of business by March...
