Chief Executive Carrie Lam on Sunday said a health code app being designed for quarantine-free travel to the mainland won't be compulsory for all Hong Kong residents, and only those who wish to go there will need to use it.
Hong Kong officials have been discussing with their counterparts on the mainland on what the SAR needs to do to allow people to travel across the border without undergoing quarantine.
Speaking on a TV programme, Lam said local health officials will soon submit a report in response to the feedback from mainland health experts on the matter.
She said she had not heard from the mainland side if discussions would be affected after an airport worker here recently tested positive for Covid-19. She also said officials plan to ask people who have a higher exposure risk to get tested more regularly to prevent an outbreak in the community.
