Hong Kong said Thursday it will soon no longer require people infected with COVID-19 to quarantine.

Chief Executive John Lee told lawmakers the move is “one of the most important steps towards normalcy.”

The new policy will begin January 30, and follows a similar move by mainland China earlier this month.

People in Hong Kong will still be required to wear masks unless exercising.
