This ad that appears on Geoexpat for masks is legit, they are a local client of ours that makes heated hiking wear, they ordered in a large supply of masks- yes, crazy expensive at 599 HKD but I need supply for office so I bit the bullet. Says delivery on Tuesday- they had sent us an e-mail yesterday that the supply was here. Anyway, I am giving it a try, I do think they will come. I feel responsible to have masks for employees, at any price...
Is there a real underlying shortage of loo roll? If so why? How many loo rolls can the average family in Hong Kong use in a week?
I can't buy any masks and am due to be in HK next week. Would it be a social issue if I take public transport, move around in my neighbourhood, and walk around the common areas my residential building without a mask? What if I take Uber? Would drivers refuse to take me?
It’s definitely a social issue in public places and MTR. Don’t worry about a mask. Just print the attached off and hand out to people. I wished I had this morning.
Obviously if you have any visible symptoms that resemble cold or flu a mask is 100 per cent essential both to reduce the germ spreading and out of common politeness.
As to Uber and other similar things they will be glad of your business mask or no mask.
