Starting Friday, Hong Kong will start a new Covid tracking system that will require those who test positive to wear a quarantine bracelet during their isolation period.

The city's health secretary, Lo Chung-mau, said earlier that the bracelet will make sure patients requiring quarantine do not leave the house.

According to a government statement, for reported cases or cases reported via online platforms, relevant government departments will arrange the distribution of anti-epidemic kits and distribute the electronic wristbands at the same time.

The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer will assist with the cases and confirm the activation of the electronic wristbands.

For details, please refer to the "Handbook for Persons Tested Positive for COVID-19". (https://www.coronavirus.gov.hk/pdf/tp_handbook.pdf)

Anyone who breaks isolation can face up to $10,000 in fines or six months jail time.
