    No More Home Quarantine

    What on earth is this joke?

    Students need to do RATs until Feb 28, but no need to quarantine? So why do we test if we do nothing about the positive results?

    Employees won't stay at home unless they have the 'paper' to show HR or their boss. Doctors won't want to consult with positive patients to give them sick leaves....

    It's okay, as long as we're still wearing masks by law.

    Yes, but not for a couple of months later.

    I think they mean enforced quarantine... without quarantine it would be like the flu i.e. use your common sense and stay home if sick.

    Are students still forced to do daily RAT tests in HK? If so, I agree this is a joke and it needs to stop right now.

    Because there's an assumption that most people who are sick with a contagious disease will use their common sense and stay home for a few days?

    I'm a parent and I really don't mind the RAT requirement, if it keeps a few more sick children home from school. It's so annoying to have young children who are constantly sick, so spreading it less can only be a good thing?

    But what I can't stand with the pandemic rules in schools is masks. They're utterly useless for young children so all they are doing is damage.

    Look how people need to be told not to travel in a typhoon.

    There’s the expectation to take flu/cold medication and show up to work.
