Hong Kong 'group gathering' regulations: more than four is now ok © Guy Nowell

The Hong Kong Boating Industry Association (HKBIA) has obtained written confirmation from the Food & Health Bureau and the Marine Dept of the HK Government as follows:

1. Privately owned Class IV vessels are classified as “private spaces”. As they are not “public spaces”, the group gathering regulation (Cap. 599G) does not apply.

2. Class IV Charter Boats that are hired for social gatherings are classified as “Party Rooms”. Therefore under Cap. 599F Schedule 2, are required to be suspended till 28 July 2020.

Anyone wishing to familiarise themselves with the newly updated CAP 599G can do so here: :https://www.elegislation.gov.hk/hk/cap599G?xpid=ID_1585378545049_001
