Government cancels arrangement of issuing isolation orders

The Government today (January 19) said that, following three years of COVID-19 epidemic in Hong Kong, with the ever evolvement of the virus and Omicron becoming the predominating variant, coupled with the enhancement of prevention and treatment capacities of the healthcare system and the handling capacity of society as a whole, the risk posed by COVID-19 to local public health has apparently altered. Considering the balance between infection risks and resumption of economic and livelihood impetus, the Government decided to cancel the arrangement of issuing isolation orders to infected persons according to the Prevention and Control of Disease Regulation (Cap. 599A) from January 30.

The Government today (January 19) said that, following three years of COVID-19 epidemic in Hong Kong, with the ever evolvement of the virus and Omicron becoming the predominating variant, coupled with the enhancement of prevention and treatment capacities of the healthcare system and the handling capacity of society as a whole, the risk posed by COVID-19 to local public health has apparently altered. Considering the balance between infection risks and resumption of economic and livelihood impetus, the Government decided to cancel the arrangement of issuing isolation orders to infected persons according to the Prevention and Control of Disease Regulation (Cap. 599A) from January 30.

Epidemic analysis

As observed from the fifth wave of the epidemic triggered by the Omicron variant since 2022, there were two peaks in early and end last year. Even though the Government has steadily adjusted the anti-epidemic measures since mid last year, including the gradual relaxation of social distancing measures and adjustment of testing and quarantine arrangements for inbound travellers, Hong Kong could still ride out the peak from the end of last year till now.

The number of cases tested positive in recent days has moderated gradually from the peak of about 30 000 cases on December 31 last year to only 3 793 cases on January 18 this year, while the proportion of death cases are remarkably lower compared to the peak in February and March last year. The public healthcare system has not been severely threatened. The following three factors could be concluded:

(1) The current overall second- and third-dose COVID-19 vaccination rates in Hong Kong have reached 93 per cent and 84 per cent respectively. With the immunity brought by a large amount of infected persons since the fifth wave of the epidemic, an effective vaccination rate equivalent to that of having received the third dose has reached around 95 per cent. The hybrid immunity barrier against COVID-19 in the overall community is very strong, and people who have completed vaccination have presented only mild symptoms after infection with Omicron variant.

(2) The public hospitals established effective contingency plans, together with the assistance of private hospitals and the prevalent use of telemedicine services and COVID-19 antiviral drugs, the general anti-epidemic capability of the healthcare system has strengthened.

(3) The anti-epidemic knowledge and experience of the general public accumulated considerably in the past three years, while the ability to prevent and handle infected cases of members of the public and residential care homes (RCHs) was enhanced.

To continue the gradual resumption to normalcy of society, the management and handling of the epidemic could be progressed to a new stage and mode by changing compulsory isolation regulations to self-decision by the public. The Government will cancel the compulsory isolation arrangement for infected persons, and advice on health measures would instead be issued to them. Apart from that, the Government will adjust the scope of target groups for free nucleic acid testing services at community testing centres/stations, including the termination of free testing provided for persons undergoing voluntary testing at appropriate times according to the situation, and to focus resources in protecting high-risk premises and groups in need of regular nucleic acid testing.

Nonetheless, as COVID-19 still brings risk and pressure to the community, especially among the young and old, as well as the healthcare system, and as there is still uncertainty in global epidemic situation, the Emergency Response Level for the COVID-19 epidemic will be maintained until further notice. The Government will also encourage members of the public who are in need of testing or are symptomatic to conduct rapid antigen tests (RATs) on their own or to seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Arrangement of cancelling of isolation orders

Starting from January 30, the Health Officer will no longer issue isolation orders to infected persons according to Cap. 599A. All persons tested positive (including by nucleic acid and RATs) are not required to report and provide personal particulars via the online platforms of the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH). The "Declaration System for Individuals Tested Positive for COVID-19 Using Rapid Antigen Test"(www.chp.gov.hk/ratp), the "Online self-reporting for COVID-19 patient"(www.chp.gov.hk/cdpi), as well as the relevant automatic telephone voice registration system (183 6119) will also cease operation on the same day.

Meanwhile, the Health Officer will cancel the active isolation orders issued by that time. In other words, those who are currently under isolation at designated premises including their places of residence or isolation facilities will no longer be required to continue their isolation starting from January 30. The Government will arrange for those staying in the isolation facilities to leave in an orderly manner and gazette the notice of relevant cancellation arrangements. In view of the aforementioned adjustments, the Government will also suspend the distribution of anti-epidemic kits to confirmed cases.

Health advice to infected persons

Members of the public who tested positive are advised to take the various advice on health measures for preventing respiratory diseases. They should: observe personal hygiene; reduce contacts with household members without wearing masks; open windows to ensure adequate ventilation of the unit; as well as clean and disinfect household environment every day.

For infected persons who belong to high-risk groups or develop obvious symptoms (e.g. fever, cough, shortness of breath, vomiting and diarrhoea), they should seek medical attention as soon as possible to obtain timely treatment. Symptomatic persons should stay at home for rest and avoid going out, while asymptomatic persons can go out on their will or go to work. To protect the young, students who have tested positive should not attend schools until they have tested negative by RATs. Infected persons should wear well-fitting surgical masks, KF94, KN95 masks, or respirators (such as N95 masks) during the first five days after testing positive. They should avoid having contact with high-risk individuals or having meals with other people at the same table. They should not go to crowded places or attend mass gatherings to lower the risk of transmission. Infected persons should observe their own health condition at all times, and seek medical attention as soon as possible if symptoms develop or worsen. As the Government will no longer issue isolation orders, those who do not feel well and in need of sick leave certificates should seek medical attention from a registered medical practitioner or Chinese medicine practitioner. Doctors will issue sick leave certificates and prescribe with prudence COVID-19 oral drugs to patients according to their clinical situation. People tested positive without symptoms should avoid going to public hospitals or general out-patient clinics with a view to preserving valuable public healthcare service capacity for those in need.

Arrangement on community isolation facilities

Having considered that some infected persons may wish to stay at the community isolation facilities (CIF) to minimise the risk of spreading COVID-19 in the household if their living environment is crowded or their household members fall into high-risk groups, the CIFs will remain in operation for a short period of time for use by Hong Kong residents. Recently infected persons who are Hong Kong residents and need to stay at CIFs may contact the Fire Services Department (Whatsapp platform: 5233 2939; Email: fsd_cif@hkfsd.gov.hk; WeChat: fsd_cif) for transfer arrangement if needed and can stay at the CIF for up to seven days. If they choose to leave the CIF earlier, negative results by RATs are not required but they cannot return to the CIF once they have left. Separately, residents at residential care homes who are infected and have received less than three doses of vaccine can be arranged to stay at the holding centres managed by the Social Welfare Department where care services are available. Residents who develop serious symptoms, regardless of the number of vaccine doses they have received, will be assessed by healthcare professionals based on their symptoms and conditions and be sent to hospitals for treatment if needed. The above transitional arrangement of CIFs and holding centres will last until February 28.

Reporting criteria and monitoring of viruses

Starting from January 30, the Government will revise the reporting criteria of COVID-19 under which doctors only need to report to the CHP death cases and severe cases. The CHP will issue letters to all doctors to inform them of the arrangement. As regards the monitoring of the epidemic and disseminating related information, the CHP will upload onto the "COVID-19 Thematic Website" (www.coronavirus.gov.hk) every day the number of specimens that tested positive by nucleic acid tests as well as the number of death cases reported by doctors and hospitals in lieu of the current practice of issuing press releases. Acting upon the World Health Organization (WHO)'s advice, the CHP will continue to monitor the development of the COVID-19 mutant strains by monitoring the surveillance data of sewage samples collected by the Environmental Protection Department in various districts and conducting COVID-19 genetic testing for in-patients. Relevant data will be reported to the WHO regularly. Together with the general out-patient clinics and private medical practitioners under the sentinel surveillance system, the CHP will monitor the weekly number of patients seeking medical consultation after being infected with COVID-19. Such surveillance data will be shared with doctors under the sentinel surveillance system.

Government adjusts local anti-epidemic measures

With a view to enabling citizens to resume their normal daily lives in a continuous and orderly manner, in light of the epidemic development and relevant risks assessment by the Department of Health (DH), the Government announced on December 28 that local anti-epidemic measures will be further adjusted starting from December 29, including removing definition of close contacts and ceasing issuance of quarantine orders, removing the Vaccine Pass requirement, lifting social distancing measures except mask-wearing, adjusting testing arrangements and maintaining local healthcare services.

With a view to enabling citizens to resume their normal daily lives in a continuous and orderly manner, in light of the epidemic development and relevant risks assessment by the Department of Health (DH), the Government announced on December 28 that local anti-epidemic measures will be further adjusted starting from December 29, including removing definition of close contacts and ceasing issuance of quarantine orders, removing the Vaccine Pass requirement, lifting social distancing measures except mask-wearing, adjusting testing arrangements and maintaining local healthcare services.

The adjustments that will come into effect from 0.00am on December 29 include –

Removing the definition of close contacts and ceasing issuance of quarantine orders

Following three years of epidemic in Hong Kong, the community immunity against COVID-19 has reached a very high level due to the increased vaccination and infection rates during the fifth wave of epidemic. Coupled with the enhancement of prevention and treatment capacities of the healthcare system, the risk posed by COVID-19 to local public health has changed.

The large number of infected cases in the community not only makes it difficult to define close contacts, but also greatly increases the social costs of quarantine orders in anti-epidemic efforts. In order to further resume social and economic activities and restore normal lives of citizens, the Government decided to cease the quarantine arrangements for close contacts (including household members living with the infected persons) and not to define close contacts and issue quarantine orders to them. In other words, household members of infected persons will not be subject to mandatory quarantine and testing and they can go out on their will. The DH will issue relevant health advice with a view to reducing the transmission risk, including advising them to conduct rapid antigen tests (RATs) daily until Day 5 on a voluntary basis (the day following testing or collection of sample by the infected household member is counted as Day 1; if there is no such testing or sample collection record, the day that the infected household member receives the positive test result is counted as Day 1) and self-monitor their health conditions.

Meanwhile, the Health Officer will cancel the quarantine orders issued earlier. In other words, those who are currently under quarantine at their places of residence or quarantine facilities will no longer be required to continue their quarantine starting from December 29. The Government will arrange for those staying in the quarantine facilities to depart in an orderly manner and gazette the notice of relevant cancellation arrangements.

In view of the aforementioned adjustments, the Government will suspend the distribution of anti-epidemic kits to close contacts starting from December 29, and cease to announce the infection status of senior officials and staff of their offices.

A Government spokesperson emphasised that the existing isolation arrangement for infected persons remains unchanged for now, and the Government will continue to distribute anti-epidemic kits to them. The Government will closely monitor the local epidemic development and make reference to the latest development of isolation arrangements for persons infected with COVID-19 (particularly for infected persons who are asymptomatic) around the world to adjust relevant measures in Hong Kong in a timely manner.

Lifting the Vaccine Pass requirement

Since the launch of the Vaccine Pass, it has effectively encouraged citizens to get vaccinated and raised the vaccination rate. The second and third dose vaccination rates have increased substantially from 71 per cent and 23 per cent in late February this year to the current 93 per cent and 83 per cent respectively, building a strong immunity barrier for Hong Kong. Taking into account that the third dose vaccination rate plus the effective vaccination rate equivalent to having received three doses has reached 94 per cent, the Government will remove the statutory Vaccine Pass requirement under the Prevention and Control of Disease (Vaccine Pass) Regulation (Cap. 599L), including the Provisional Vaccine Pass arrangement currently applicable to inbound travellers.

The spokesman stressed that COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective in preventing severe cases and deaths from infection. The Government will continue to encourage and provide convenience to citizens who have not received suitable doses of vaccine to get vaccinated as early as possible, in particular high-risk persons such as the elderly and the young.

Lifting social distancing measures except mask-wearing

On the premise of safeguarding public health, the Government has been striving to balance the social and economic needs in suitably adjusting social distancing measures such that citizens' daily lives may resume normal in an orderly manner.

Considering the latest epidemic development and citizens' aspiration for resuming normal daily lives, starting from December 29, the Government will lift all social distancing measures except mask-wearing, including the restrictions and requirements in relation to the operation of catering business premises and scheduled premises under the Prevention and Control of Disease (Requirements and Directions) (Business and Premises) Regulation (Cap. 599F), (e.g. the maximum number of persons allowed in each group, distancing requirements between groups, closure of facilities such as steam and sauna facilities, requirements for staff of premises to undergo RATs, etc.), and restriction in relation to group gatherings in public places under the Prevention and Control of Disease (Prohibition on Gathering) Regulation (Cap. 599G).

At this stage, however, the Government will maintain the mandatory mask-wearing requirements under the Prevention and Control of Disease (Wearing of Mask) Regulation (Cap. 599I). This means that citizens are required to continue to wear a mask in accordance with the existing requirements when they are on public transport carriers, in specified public places, and at catering business premises and scheduled premises under Cap. 599F. In accordance with existing requirements, persons are allowed not to wear masks if they are present in outdoor public places in country parks and special areas as defined in section 2 of the Country Parks Ordinance (Cap. 208). Details of the mask-wearing requirements applicable to catering business premises and scheduled premises are set out in Annex. The Government will review the relevant requirements from time to time and make timely announcements on the latest adjustments.

Wearing mask is an effective measure to prevent the transmission of various respiratory viruses while protecting the wearer and others. Particularly, Hong Kong is facing the winter surge of influenza, so it is imperative to prevent citizens from coinfection of COVID-19 and influenza which would result in severe conditions. Mask-wearing would also help safeguard the healthcare system in Hong Kong.

Enhancing testing arrangements and protecting target groups

The Government will continue to endeavour to protect target groups. Apart from patients in public hospitals, special attention is also given in protecting persons in residential care homes and schools so as to reduce their health risk caused by virus transmission.

For residential care homes, various existing testing arrangements will be maintained. All staff members of residential care homes for the elderly (RCHEs) and residential homes for persons with disabilities (RCHDs) are required to conduct RATs daily and undergo a nucleic acid test every two days, with a view to protecting the residents of RCHEs and RCHDs.

The Education Bureau will assess the vaccination situation in schools for reviewing and adjusting the arrangements for conducting RATs, and discuss with schools and seek advice from the Centre for Health Protection.

The Government will suspend the issuance of daily compulsory testing notices for residential buildings. Nevertheless, some 80 community testing centres and stations (CTC/CTSs) in various districts across the city will continue to provide nucleic acid testing services for members of the public, including free nucleic acid testing service for persons undergoing voluntary testing; as well as self-paid nucleic acid testing service for persons who need to obtain test results (such as certifications for travelling purpose).

Maintaining local healthcare services

The Government will make every effort in protecting local healthcare system and resources and ensure that Hong Kong residents in need will be accorded priority in receiving medical services and drugs. The Hospital Authority (HA) will continue to strengthen its emergency response and medical systems to ensure the efficient utilisation of resources and to improve its handling capacities. Eligible Persons (EP) who are infected will have the priority to receive medical services and drugs.

Starting from December 29, Non-eligible Persons (NEP) (such as non-Hong Kong residents and travellers, etc.) will not be able to receive services at the designated clinics and through tele-consultation services provided by the HA. While the Accident and Emergency Departments of the HA will still provide urgent treatment and services to NEP with genuine urgent medical needs, they are required to pay for the treatment fees according to the established mechanism to be gazetted, which are calculated by costs and at a higher rate than those applicable to EP. If COVID-19 oral drugs (e.g. Paxlovid and Molnupiravir) are prescribed in the treatment process, the non-eligible COVID-19 patients are also required to pay for the relevant drugs.

Private hospitals and clinics have already been allocated COVID-19 oral drugs through the DH and the HA. The Government urges private hospitals and clinics to provide medical services to patients, in order to alleviate the load on the public healthcare system. Moreover, private medical institutions can order the two COVID-19 oral drugs directly from the relevant drugs manufacturers. Non-eligible COVID-19 patients should receive treatment and be prescribed relevant drugs directly from private medical institutions.

The spokesperson emphasised that there is sufficient stock of drugs within the public healthcare system for prescription to COVID-19 patients (including medicine containing paracetamols and the aforementioned oral drugs, etc.). The DH and the HA are also increasing their procurement volumes and will streamline the distribution arrangement to ensure that there are sufficient medical resources to meet local needs.

As regards COVID-19 vaccines, it has all along been the Government's policy objective to ensure sufficient supply of vaccines under the Government's vaccination programme. Hong Kong residents have already been accorded priority to receive free Comirnaty bivalent vaccine and the paediatric and toddler formulation of the Comirnaty vaccine. For Comirnaty ancestral strain and the Sinovac vaccines, only non-Hong Kong residents who can prove to have met the specified staying requirement (i.e. staying for at least 30 days) are eligible for receiving the relevant vaccines as boosters free of charge.

In addition, it is expected that non-Hong Kong residents would be able to receive Comirnaty bivalent vaccine at private medical institutions at their own expense in the near future. Vaccination for non-Hong Kong residents is provided by the private market and under a system separate from the Government's procurement. The Government will closely monitor the supply of vaccines under the Government's vaccination programme to ensure that the vaccination arrangement of Hong Kong residents will not be affected. Non-Hong Kong residents visiting Hong Kong for a short term of stay will not be allowed to receive free vaccination under the Government's vaccination programme.

Continue to monitor the virus trend

The Government adheres to the protection of public health and closely monitors the local epidemic development, including maintaining sewage surveillance by collecting sewage samples for virus testing in all districts; inspecting on a random basis the cases admitted to public hospitals and the positive specimens collected at CTC/CTSs; and follows the World Health Organization's advice to keep monitoring the variants of COVID-19 and epidemic development, including the emergence of variants of concern.

The spokesperson said, "The HKSAR persists in relaxing yet does not give up in fighting against the epidemic. The Government has all along been tackling the COVID-19 epidemic under the principles of science-based and targeted anti-epidemic measures, as well as the proper management of risks and citizen-focused facilitation. While safeguarding the well-being of citizens and protecting the public healthcare system, we also seek to reduce the disruption to normal social activities with a view to achieving the greatest effect with the lowest cost. The Government will closely monitor the mutation of COVID-19 virus and epidemic development, and adjust anti-epidemic measures in a timely manner based on analyses of scientific data."

Government adjusts testing arrangements for inbound persons

The Government announced today (December 28) that starting from tomorrow (December 29), the pre-departure testing arrangements for all inbound persons will be standardised and all nucleic acid testing requirements after their arrival at Hong Kong will be lifted. Inbound persons are advised to conduct daily rapid antigen test (RAT) until Day 5 after their arrival at Hong Kong.

...

The Government announced today (December 28) that starting from tomorrow (December 29), the pre-departure testing arrangements for all inbound persons will be standardised and all nucleic acid testing requirements after their arrival at Hong Kong will be lifted. Inbound persons are advised to conduct daily rapid antigen test (RAT) until Day 5 after their arrival at Hong Kong.

To fully leverage Hong Kong's strengths in connecting with the world and to prepare for the resumption of travel with the Mainland, the Government will further streamline inbound control measures starting from 0.00am tomorrow on the premise of striking a balance between risks and economic impetus. Details are as follows.

Standardising pre-departure testing requirements

All inbound persons (aged three or above on the date of arrival at Hong Kong), regardless of being from the Mainland, Macao, Taiwan or overseas places, are required to conduct an RAT within 24 hours, or undergo a polymerase chain reaction-based nucleic acid test within 48 hours, prior to the scheduled time of flight departure (for those entering Hong Kong via the airport) or the scheduled time of arrival at Hong Kong (for those entering Hong Kong via other boundary control points), and obtain a negative result for entering Hong Kong. Upon receiving the test results, relevant persons should keep the photos showing the test results or the test report for 90 days for presentation for checking on request by Government personnel. They may also voluntarily declare the test result via the Department of Health's electronic health declaration form.

Lifting post-arrival nucleic acid testing requirement

Starting tomorrow, the Government will also lift all existing nucleic acid testing requirements applicable to inbound persons, including:

(1) Lifting the nucleic acid test under the "test-and-go" arrangement on the day of arrival (Day 0) at the airport and on Day 2 after arrival at Hong Kong for inbound persons from overseas places or Taiwan

(2) Lifting the nucleic acid test on Day 2 after arrival at Hong Kong (and an additional nucleic acid test on Day 1 after arrival at Hong Kong for those who have stayed in any place on the List of At-Risk Places within the Mainland or Macao under the Return2hk / Come2hk Scheme) for inbound persons from the Mainland or Macao

After the aforementioned nucleic acid testing requirements have been lifted, relevant inbound persons who had already arrived at Hong Kong today or earlier will no longer be required to undergo the relevant post-arrival nucleic acid tests according to the original requirement.

Health advice on conducting RATs after arrival at Hong Kong

The Government continues to advise all inbound persons to conduct daily RATs using self-arranged RAT kits during the period between the day of arrival (i.e. Day 0) and Day 5 after arrival at Hong Kong.

The handling arrangements for inbound persons tested positive align with that for local cases. Relevant persons should provide information to the Centre for Health Protection of the Department of Health through the online platforms (for nucleic acid tests or RATs) as early as possible. For further details, please refer to the webpage on Points to Note for Persons who Tested Positive.

Cessation of the Provisional Vaccine Pass arrangement

In alignment with the cessation of implementation of the Vaccine Pass arrangement under the Prevention and Control of Disease (Vaccine Pass) Regulation (Cap. 599L) by the Government, the arrangement for inbound persons to obtain a Provisional Vaccine Pass will cease.

The requirement for non-Hong Kong residents to be fully vaccinated for boarding a flight to Hong Kong from overseas places will remain unchanged for the time being.

The Government will gazette the relevant specification notices under the Compulsory Quarantine of Certain Persons Arriving at Hong Kong Regulation (Cap. 599C), the Compulsory Quarantine of Persons Arriving at Hong Kong from Foreign Places Regulation (Cap. 599E) and the Prevention and Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation (Cap. 599J) to effect the above measures.

The Government will continue to suitably adjust anti-epidemic measures based on scientific analyses of data. While safeguarding the well-being of citizens and protecting the public healthcare system, the Government also seeks to reduce the disruption to normal social activities with a view to achieving the greatest effect with the lowest cost.

Pengaturan fleksibel untuk membantu pekerja rumah tangga asing dan pemberi kerja menghadapi pandemi COVID-19 akan dihentikan pada tanggal 1 Mei 2023 (Flexibility arrangements to assist foreign domestic helpers and employers cope with COVID-19 pandemic will be discontinued on May 1, 2023)

Pemerintah hari ini (19 Desember) mengumumkan bahwa pengaturan fleksibel untuk membantu pengurus rumah tangga asing (PRTA) dan pemberi kerja dalam menghadapi pandemi COVID-19 akan dihentikan pada tanggal 1 Mei 2023.

...

Pemerintah hari ini (19 Desember) mengumumkan bahwa pengaturan fleksibel untuk membantu pengurus rumah tangga asing (PRTA) dan pemberi kerja dalam menghadapi pandemi COVID-19 akan dihentikan pada tanggal 1 Mei 2023.

Jurubicara Pemerintah mengatakan, “Untuk membantu PRTA dan pemberi kerja menghadapi pandemi COVID-19, sejak awal tahun 2020 Pemerintah telah menerapkan serangkaian langkah-langkah untuk meringankan PRTA dan pemberi kerja mereka, termasuk pengaturan fleksibel yang memungkinkan perpanjangan masa berlaku kontrak kerja yang ada dan penangguhan kepulangan PRTA ke tempat asalnya. Pemerintah telah memantau perkembangan pandemi dengan cermat untuk meninjau dan menyesuaikan langkah-langkah tersebut. Dengan mempertimbangkan bahwa penerbangan antara Hong Kong dan negara-negara utama pengirim PRTA telah dibuka kembali secara bertahap setelah pencabutan mekanisme penangguhan penerbangan berdasarkan tempat dan rute masing-masing pada tanggal 1 April dan 7 Juli tahun ini; pencabutan persyaratan karantina wajib saat kedatangan di Hong Kong yang berlaku mulai 26 September; serta pelonggaran langkah-langkah kontrol masuk secara bertahap, Pemerintah telah meninjau situasi dan memutuskan untuk menghentikan pengaturan fleksibel yang disebutkan di atas mulai tanggal 1 Mei 2023 dan seterusnya. Untuk memberikan waktu yang cukup bagi PRTA dan pemberi kerja mereka dalam membuat pengaturan yang sesuai, pengaturan fleksibel berikut yang diumumkan hari ini akan dilaksanakan hingga tanggal 30 April 2023. Pemerintah mengingatkan pemberi kerja dan PRTA untuk membahas hal-hal yang berkaitan dengan pekerjaan, perpanjangan kontrak atau kepulangan PRTA ke tempat asal sesegera mungkin untuk menghindari pelanggaran persyaratan terkait.”

Pengaturan fleksibel ditetapkan di bawah ini.

Perpanjangan masa berlaku kontrak yang sedang berjalan

Untuk semua kontrak PRTA yang akan berakhir pada atau sebelum tanggal 30 April 2023, pemberi kerja dapat mengajukan permohonan untuk memperpanjang masa berlaku kontrak yang sedang berjalan dengan PRTA tersebut. Untuk kontrak-kontrak seperti disebutkan di atas, Komisaris Tenaga Kerja telah memberikan persetujuan untuk memperpanjang masa kerja yang tercantum dalam Pasal 2 Kontrak Kerja Standar (SEC) untuk jangka waktu paling lama enam bulan, selama variasi tersebut disepakati bersama oleh pemberi kerja dan PRTA terkait. Namun, aplikasi untuk perpanjangan kontrak lebih lanjut dari kontak yang pernah diperpanjang berdasarkan pengaturan fleksibel yang diumumkan sebelumnya tidak akan dipertimbangkan. Jika pemberi kerja perlu untuk terus mempekerjakan PRTA-nya lebih dari jangka waktu enam bulan yang telah diperpanjang, maka pemberi kerja harus mempertimbangkan untuk mengajukan permohonan perpanjangan kontrak dengan PRTA yang masih bekerja. Semua aplikasi harus sampai di Departemen Imigrasi (ImmD) pada atau sebelum tanggal 30 April 2023. Aplikasi yang terlambat tidak akan diterima.

Penundaan kepulangan ke tempat asal

Dalam situasi normal, PRTA yang memperbarui kontrak dengan pemberi kerja yang sama atau memulai kontrak baru dengan pemberi kerja baru setelah kontrak berakhir, dapat mengajukan permohonan kepada ImmD untuk menunda kepulangan ke tempat asal selama tidak lebih dari satu tahun setelah kontrak berakhir, tergantung pada persetujuan dengan pemberi kerja yang sekarang atau pemberi kerja yang baru. Di bawah pengaturan fleksibel terkait, jika seorang PRTA tidak dapat pulang ke tempat asalnya dalam jangka waktu satu tahun tersebut, ia dapat, atas persetujuan pemberi kerja, mengajukan permohonan kepada ImmD untuk perpanjangan lebih lanjut batas tinggalnya sampai akhir masa kontraknya sedemikian rupa sehingga dia dapat pulang ke tempat asal dalam jangka waktu tersebut.

Jika periode satu tahun seperti yang disebutkan di atas berakhir pada atau sebelum tanggal 30 April 2023, PRTA dapat mengajukan permohonan tersebut kepada ImmD dalam waktu delapan minggu sebelum berakhirnya batas tinggal yang ada untuk memperpanjang batas tinggal sampai akhir masa kontraknya. Semua aplikasi harus sampai di Departemen Imigrasi (ImmD) pada atau sebelum tanggal 30 April 2023. Aplikasi yang terlambat tidak akan diterima. Pemerintah mengingatkan pemberi kerja dan PRTA bahwa pengaturan fleksibel di atas harus disepakati bersama antara pemberi kerja dan PRTA, dan persyaratan bahwa PRTA harus pulang ke tempat asalnya tetap berlaku. Pemberi kerja harus mengatur agar PRTA mereka pulang ke tempat asal dalam batas waktu tinggal yang telah diperpanjang. Untuk PRTA dengan periode satu tahun - seperti yang disebutkan di atas - berakhir pada atau setelah tanggal 1 Mei 2023, periode pemulangan mereka ke tempat asal tidak akan diperpanjang lagi.

Selain itu, Pemerintah mengingatkan PRTA dan calon pemberi kerja bahwa, sesuai dengan kebijakan Pemerintah terkait PRTA yang berlaku saat ini, seorang PRTA harus meninggalkan Hong Kong setelah menyelesaikan kontrak kerja atau dalam waktu dua minggu sejak tanggal pemutusan kontrak, mana yang terjadi lebih dulu. Kecuali untuk keadaan luar biasa yang dianggap wajar oleh ImmD (termasuk pemutusan kontrak sebelum waktunya karena pemindahan, migrasi, kematian atau alasan keuangan dari pemberi kerja, atau jika ada bukti bahwa PRTA telah menagalami kekerasan atau dieksploitasi), permohonan dari PRTA untuk pergantian pemberi kerja di Hong Kong dalam periode kontrak dua tahun biasanya tidak akan disetujui. PRTA yang ingin memiliki pemberi kerja baru harus meninggalkan Hong Kong dan mengajukan aplikasi visa kerja yang baru ke ImmD.

Pemerintah menghimbau masyarakat untuk mengajukan aplikasi visa untuk PRTA dan mempekerjakan PRTA lebih lanjut melalui sarana online, termasuk melalui aplikasi seluler ImmD. Melalui layanan elektronik aplikasi visa dan pengaturan "e-Visa" yang dilaksanakan oleh ImmD, masyarakat dapat menyelesaikan seluruh proses aplikasi visa, termasuk pengajuan aplikasi, pembayaran dan pengambilan "e-Visa". Pengguna juga dapat menanyakan tentang status aplikasi dan mengirimkan dokumen tambahan dan pemberitahuan penghentian kontrak kerja sebelum waktunya melalui halaman web khusus "Layanan Online untuk Pengurus Rumah Tangga Asing" oleh ImmD di www.immd.gov.hk/fdh.

Departemen Tenaga Kerja (Labour Department - LD) hari ini (8 Desember) mengingatkan Pengurus Rumah Tangga Asing (PRTA) dan pemberi kerja bahwa Pemerintah akan menyesuaikan pengaturan kontrol masuk untuk orang yang tiba dari luar negeri efektif mulai tanggal 9 Desember (Jumat).

Juru bicara LD mengatakan, “Saat ini PRTA diharuskan untuk menjalani tes asam nukleat (PCR) pada tanggal kedatangan di Hong Kong dan pada Hari ke-2 setelah kedatangan. Mereka harus melakukan tes rapid antigen (RAT) setiap hari sampai hari ke 7 setelah tiba di Hong Kong, dan baru bisa keluar dari tempat tinggal setelah mendapatkan hasil negatif. Mulai besok, PRTA yang datang bekerja di Hong Kong pada atau setelah tanggal 2 Desember hanya diwajibkan untuk melakukan RAT harian sampai Hari ke-5 setelah kedatangan. Persyaratan untuk menjalani tes PCR pada saat kedatangan dan pada Hari ke-2 setelah kedatangan tetap tidak berubah. Mengingat kondisi masing-masing keluarga, Komisaris Tenaga Kerja memberikan persetujuan kepada pemberi kerja untuk memilih dan mengatur tempat tinggal PRTA di hotel atau guest-house berlisensi selama lima hari tersebut. Untuk keperluan ini, tidak perlu memasukkan permohonan ke LD. Jika pemberi kerja mengatur PRTA untuk tinggal di hotel atau guest-house berlisensi, maka pemberi kerja harus menanggung biaya akomodasi dan memberikan tunjangan makan kepada PRTA selama periode tersebut."

Adapun PRTA yang tiba di Hong Kong sebelum tanggal 9 Desember dan masih tinggal di hotel atau guest-house berlisensi untuk tiga hari pengawasan medis dan empat hari pemantauan mandiri, mereka diizinkan untuk terus tinggal di hotel atau guest-house tersebut tidak lebih dari tujuh hari untuk menyelesaikan masa pengawasan dan pemantauan. Daftar hotel dan guest-house berlisensi dapat ditemukandi sini.

Jika seorang PRTA tidak dapat bekerja di tempat tinggal pemberi kerjanya karena pemberi kerja telah mengatur agar PRTA tersebut tinggal di hotel atau guest-house berlisensi selama periode yang disebutkan di atas, maka pemberi kerja harus membayar PRTA dengan jumlah yang setara dengan remunerasi yang akan didapatkan PRTA jika dia telah bekerja selama periode tersebut.

Setelah tiba di Hong Kong, PRTA harus mengikuti ketentuan pembatasan Kode Amber pada Vaccine Pass. Mereka dapat bekerja di tempat tinggal pemberi kerja dan dapat keluar rumah untuk melakukan aktivitas dasar sehari-hari yang beresiko rendah, misalnya menggunakan fasilitas transportasi, pergi ke supermarket dan pasar, dan sebagainya, namun mereka tidak boleh memasuki tempat-tempat beresiko tinggi dimana ada aktivitas tanpa masker atau aktivitas berkelompok, dan juga tempat-tempat lain yang memerlukan perlindungan khusus (untuk lebih rinci, silakan klik di sini). Setelah mendapatkan hasil tes negatif secara berturut-turut, Vaccine Pass PRTA akan berubah menjadi Kode Biru pada Hari ke-3 setelah kedatangan di Hong Kong.

Secara terpisah, persyaratan agar PRTA yang tiba di Hong Kong untuk menunjukkan bukti hasil negatif RAT yang dilakukan maksimal 24 jam sebelum jadwal keberangkatan dan melengkapi Deklarasi Informasi Kesehatan & Karantina online dari Departemen Kesehatan (www.chp.gov.hk/hdf) sebelum boarding tetap tidak berubah.

Untuk informasi lebih rinci mengenai pengaturan di atas, silakan merujuk ke siaran pers Pemerintah pada tanggal 8 Desember (www.info.gov.hk/gia/general/202212/08/P2022120800701.htm).

Portal khusus PRTA dari LD (www.fdh.labour.gov.hk) juga menyediakan informasi dan tautan yang berguna terkait pengaturan kontrol masuk untuk PRTA. Jika ada pertanyaan tentang pengaturan kontrol masuk untuk PRTA, silakan hubungi LD melalui hotline 24 jam di 2717 1771 (ditangani oleh 1823), email ke fdh-enquiry@labour.gov.hk atau dengan mengisi formulir online di portal khusus PRTA (www.fdh.labour.gov.hk).

Majikan dilarang memberhentikan pengurus rumah tangga asing yang terjangkit covid-19 (Employers should not dismiss foreign domestic helpers who have contracted COVID-19)

Hari ini (24 Februari), Departemen Tenaga Kerja (LD) mengingatkan bahwa majikan dilarang memberhentikan pengurus rumah tangga asing (FDH) yang terjangkit COVID-19 dan diharuskan untuk mematuhi persyaratan berdasarkan UU Ketenagakerjaan (EO) dan Kontrak Kerja Standar (SEC) di tengah pandemi.

Hari ini (24 Februari), Departemen Tenaga Kerja (LD) mengingatkan bahwa majikan dilarang memberhentikan pengurus rumah tangga asing (FDH) yang terjangkit COVID-19 dan diharuskan untuk mematuhi persyaratan berdasarkan UU Ketenagakerjaan (EO) dan Kontrak Kerja Standar (SEC) di tengah pandemi.

Juru bicara LD mengatakan bahwa, "Majikan yang mempekerjakan FDH harus mematuhi kewajiban dan persyaratan berdasarkan EO dan SEC. Kami ingin mengingatkan bahwa para majikan dilarang memutus kontrak kerja karena FDH terjangkit COVID-19. Berdasarkan EO, majikan dilarang memutus kontrak kerja pekerja pada hari cuti sakit berbayarnya, kecuali dalam hal pemecatan mendadak akibat kelalaian serius yang dilakukan oleh pekerja. Majikan yang melanggar ketentuan yang relevan di EO akan dianggap melanggar hukum dan dapat dijatuhi tuntutan, serta, atas putusan bersalah, dapat dikenai denda maksimum sebesar $100.000. Selain itu, apabila majikan melanggar EO, yang bersangkutan akan dianggap tidak memenuhi syarat untuk mempekerjakan FDH dalam rentang waktu tertentu dan pengajuan visa untuk FDH akan ditolak. Majikan juga diingatkan atas kemungkinan pelanggaran UU Diskriminasi Penyandang Disabilitas (DDO) apabila majikan tersebut memperlakukan FDH secara tidak baik (misalnya memberhentikan) karena terjangkit oleh atau telah sembuh dari COVID-19."

Selama EO berlaku, majikan harus memberikan cuti sakit dan tunjangan sakit kepada FDH yang memenuhi syarat sesuai dengan EO apabila FDH tersebut jatuh sakit. Apabila hari sakit berbayar belum cukup terkumpul oleh FDH yang sakit untuk menutupi masa cuti sakitnya, Pemerintah mengimbau majikan untuk berbelas kasih dan mempertimbangkan untuk memberikan cuti sakit berbayar kepada FDH. Selain itu, berdasarkan ketentuan dalam SEC, majikan harus memberikan akomodasi yang sesuai tanpa dipungut biaya serta pengobatan medis bebas biaya kepada FDH.

Juru bicara melanjutkan, "FDH membantu keluarga Hong Kong untuk melakukan pekerjaan rumah tangga serta merawat lansia dan mengasuh anak. Mereka berkontribusi besar untuk Hong Kong. Saat ini, jumlah FDH sudah menurun menjadi sekitar 340.000 dari puncaknya, yakni 400.000 pada Januari 2020 akibat pandemi. Dalam menghadapi pandemi, diperlukan sikap saling mendukung dan pengertian. Demi memenuhi kebutuhan keluarga setempat, kita harus meningkatkan dukungan dan perlindungan kepada FDH agar reputasi Hong Kong sebagai tempat kerja yang menarik bagi FDH tetap terjaga. Pemerintah mengimbau para majikan dan FDH untuk melawan virus bersama-sama. Majikan tidak boleh sewenang-wenang memberhentikan FDH yang terinfeksi. Setiap FDH yang dipecat oleh majikan akibat terjangkit COVID-19 dapat mendatangi LD untuk mendapatkan bantuan."

FDH dan majikan dapat menelepon saluran siaga FDH di 21579537 (ditangani oleh 1823), mengirim surel ke fdh-enquiry@labour.gov.hk atau menghubungi LD melalui formulir daring di Portal khusus (www.fdh.labour.gov.hk). Untuk informasi terkait COVID-19 dan DDO, majikan dapat merujuk pada situs web Komisi Kesetaraan Kesempatan
