Hong Kong’s new health chief said travelers can be allowed to conduct some of their quarantine at home, as long as a China-like health code system is in place to manage their movement. 

The city is also planning to introduce tracking bracelets for Covid patients isolating at home, to ensure they don’t leave their premises. A traffic light health code system like in China will better manage social distancing for the local population, said Secretary for Health Lo Chung-mau in a Monday press briefing.
