Macao-registered non-resident workers from overseas countries, if currently outside the city, are prohibited from re-entering Macao, starting after the stroke of midnight today (19 March).
The ban does not cover those registered non-resident workers who at the same time are residents either of mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan.
The measure was set out in Executive Order No. 73/2020 published on 18 March in the Macao SAR Gazette. It has been issued – in accordance with the Law on the Prevention, Control and Treatment of Infectious Diseases – in view of local developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
The latest measure seeks to prevent further infection being imported to Macao and to protect the health of the Macao public.View gallery
