Tai Wai estate locked down due to infection of sixth Moon Palace diner

A block at Granville Garden, Tai Wai has been locked down on Monday night after a sixth diner at Moon Palace tested positive.
The lock down started at Tower 2 of the estate at 7pm, and is expected to finish by 7.30am on Tuesday.

The sixth diner at the restaurant at Festival Walk, Kowloon Tong is a 66-year-old woman. She ate at the restaurant on December 27 afternoon, and tested preliminary positive on Sunday. She visited multiple eateries during her incubation period.

Her case was announced as authorities reported 29 new coronavirus cases, including 28 imported cases and one family member of a confirmed case.

On the other hand, the government also announced putting Bulgaria in Group A specified places from Thursday midnight due to detection of Omicron cases in the country.

Non-Hong Kong residents who have stayed there within 21 days will not be allowed to enter Hong Kong. Hong Kong residents can only board a flight for Hong Kong if they have been fully vaccinated and hold a recognized vaccination record.

They will have to undergo compulsory quarantine in a designated quarantine hotel for 21 days upon returning to Hong Kong, with six tests to be conducted during quarantine, followed by compulsory testing in a community testing center on the 26th day of arrival in Hong Kong.
