Guests take a selfie at Hong Kong Disneyland

Hong Kong is planning to ease its strict Coronavirus restrictions from Feb 18th which includes the re-opening of entertainment facilities and extending dining hours.

The new rules also include relaxed restrictions for theme parks including Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.

Health Secretary, Sophia Chan said today that “we are cautiously optimistic on the pandemic” and hoped the city could quickly get back to normal.

Catering businesses will be allowed to operate until 10 pm while beauty salons, theme parks, movie theaters, and more would be allowed to reopen as long as specific health and safety measurements are in place.

Cases in Hong Kong have fallen below 30 a day compared to 80 cases a day several weeks ago.

Towards the end of 2020, rising cases in the Chinese special administrative region resulted in Hong Kong Disneyland Resort temporarily closing for the third time in the year.

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort has yet to announce if and when they will be re-opening to the public.
