June 2021: With the vaccine bubble, which started April 29, restaurants with staff that have received their first dose of the vaccine will be allowed to operate until midnight and seat up to six customers per table. Venues with staff that have received their second vaccination can set up an area for customers who have taken their first vaccine dose, seating eight guests per table at 75 percent capacity and resume dining services until 2am. As usual, temperature checks and hand sanitiser is given to guests upon arrival, and customers must wear masks before and after the meal, and when picking up their orders. Guests must also log into the 'Leave Home Safe' app or register their contact details. Visit this link for regular updates on social distancing regulations in Hong Kong.
