Impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak on Hong Kong.
To curb the spread of COVID-19, the Hong Kong government has closed universities until mid-March and schools until April 20. Public facilities are closed until further notice. Civil servants have been asked to work from home, and the government has strongly encouraged private businesses to implement work-from-home arrangements. Only three of Hong Kong’s 13 border crossings with mainland China remain open, and anyone entering from mainland China must undergo a 14-day quarantine.
