HK marathon gets 'M' Mark

The Major Sports Events Committee today announced that it has awarded the "M" Mark status to the 25th Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon to be held on February 12.   The committee's Chairman Wilfred Ng said the event will add colour and vibrancy to Hong Kong, like all other "M" Mark events.   “The 'M' Mark events showcase Hong Kong's capability to host world-class events and enhance Hong Kong's position as a centre for major international sports activities.   “These events also allow the general public to enjoy and participate in high-level competitions and nurture a sustainable sporting culture in the community,” he added.   Launched in 2004, the "M" Mark system aims to help local national sports associations organise more major international sports events and nurture them into sustainable undertakings. http://dlvr.it/Sj0HBF

Vaccination record rules adjusted

The Government announced that beginning August 20, it will slightly adjust vaccination record requirements for people arriving in Hong Kong from overseas places and Taiwan.   The new rules concern those arriving in the city who have stayed in medium-risk Group B specified places, Taiwan or low-risk Group C specified places.   They will be regarded as fulfilling the boarding and compulsory quarantine period-related vaccination record requirements if they hold vaccination records issued by the relevant authorities or institutions where the vaccines were administered.   For people who had stayed in high-risk Group A specified places, they must hold recognised vaccination records so as to be regarded as fulfilling the relevant requirements.       The above-mentioned arrangements are the same as the requirements on vaccination records that were implemented from August 9 for people arriving from those places.   The Government reminded citizens that the relevant requirements for Hong Kong residents arriving from high-risk Group A specified places remain unchanged.   It added that they must hold recognised vaccination records for boarding flights for the city and undergo 21 days of compulsory quarantine in designated hotels upon arrival.
