    Thanks. No info on when it was last updated but appears my area has none ATM which is surprising as there were a few couple weeks back, good news I suppose.

    They should just add yellow pins on the main map, bloody site is straight out of the 90s

    Who'd have thunk it, a government-organised response being associated with the word 'confused'.

    Yet it appears to be a recurring theme...

    so based on my understanding, bars and restaurants should be BAU and still serving liquor for now, right? Correct me if Im wrong

    Is the HK border closed to foreigners in the end? Or was it another bullshit message Lam said never to be followed up by actual execution of the order?

    Our gym closed a while back, as did the sauna and jacuzzi. Today they closed everything else. What's the position re club fees for a club that's basically shut? No word from ours on any reductions.

    This may not be a popular position here, but I think a correction in real estate and rental prices is long, long overdue.

    You're correct. You can still slip away for that sly pint this evening while the wife thinks you're picking up a takeaway. Unless they announce the ban before you finish work!

    Still boggles my mind that restaurants and bars are allowed to operate freely but healthy recreational activities are not. Go get shitfaced indoors with a pile of people but don't go outdoors to play tennis or golf where there is loads of space. Magnificently coherent and consistent exactly as is expected from the government.

    Isn't that already possible, though not in the way that most people would want?

    i.e. when someone is made redundant thanks the virus-hit economy, the employer can just dip into poor sap's MPF and 'pay' them redundancy using their supposed retirement money.
