Hong Kong's Occupy Central protest leaders call for supporters to hold a major rally after the Government of Hong Kong calls off planned talks.
Hong Kong reports a record for the fourth consecutive day of 625 new COVID-19 cases, prompting the government to impose strict social distancing measures in places of worship and hair salons as well as limiting private gatherings to two people beginning on February 10.
The authorities extends the compulsory quarantine in designed hotels to 21 days for visitors from outside China, Macau, and Taiwan beginning tomorrow and also ban all people who stayed in South Africa over the past 21 days from entering Hong Kong in order to prevent the spread of new variants of SARS-CoV-2.
The Hong Kong government announces that they will limit the number of people in a gathering to two, close venues such as mahjong parlours and swimming pools and ask most civil servants to work from home for two weeks beginning December 2. Ocean Park and Hong Kong Disneyland will also be closed.
The government announces that Hong Kong will close some entertainment venues such as bars, nightclubs and bathhouses from November 26 to December 2. In addition, a maximum of ten tables will be allowed in restaurants, with four people per table. These measures come as Hong Kong reports 80 new cases in the past 24 hours, the highest single-day total since August.
Hong Kong announces that it will reopen public beaches and increase the number of people allowed to sit together in bars to four people, and at restaurants to six people, on October 30, as part of a relaxation of social distancing measures. The city's government also said that those venues will be allowed to run on-site services until 2:00 a.m. local time.
Hong Kong customs authorities deny entry and deport a Taiwanese rights activist intending to support the Occupy Central campaign, which has gathered almost 800,000 votes in an unofficial poll on electoral reform.
