Masks will not be required both indoors and outdoors but they will still need to be worn on some premises.
Hongkongers and tourists can go mask-free from Wednesday as the city finally lifts its last major Covid
-19 restriction after almost three years.
At a media session before the Executive Council meeting on Tuesday, Chief Executive John Lee Ka-chiu announced the city’s indoor and outdoor mask requirements, as well as on public transport, would be scrapped from March 1.
But wearing face coverings would still be required at some premises with administrative functions, such as care homes for the elderly and hospitals, he added.
