Hong Kong lifts mandatory masking from March 1

Hong Kong has lifted its mask mandate, marking an end to one of the world’s longest-running Covid restrictions. Under the mandate, which began in July 2020 and lasted for 945 days, people could be fined up to HK$5,000 (£530; $640).

Before Wednesday, people living in Hong Kong had to wear a mask in any public area. Some criticised the rule’s duration and its sudden scrapping amid wider criticism of the city’s pandemic policies for the past three years.
