    Ask your employer .. some of the tests are mandated by the employer - and some are mandated by the govt. As far as I can tell, the govt has not relaxed staff RAT testing rules.

    The daily rat testing for school is pointless and dumb.

    Along with all the government measures.

    Coming back to HK in a month. Betting 5HKD (with ERII on the back, not this Bauhinia stuff) that there will be mask-free outdoors. Any takers?

    if a visitor is tested positive, are they allowed to fly out before the 5 days of isolation is over?
