Penny's Bay is back!

For you AND your family. No more home isolation if you test positive.
Compulsory, uncompensated mini closed loops. An activity tracking up that is probably illegal in most countries.

BOOM!

Doesnít surprise me.

Sadly with the new leader in July, I see more of this covid zero rhetoric taking place, any talk of a roadmap to reopening is contingent on a mainland border open first which is a pipe dream.

Isolation hotels are for quarantine. If you test positive then Gulag at Penny's Bay, Kai Tak, Shueng Shui, Tsing Yi, etc. In addition Close Contact tracing is now back so Gulag for your family too.

I understand from a colleague that you are now not allowed to receive parcels from outside into Pennys bay except for medicines. Mind you she is Philippina so they may have different regulations for different nationalities.

So pack a big case with supplies for 14 days. If the quarantine hotels are anything to go by the food at PB will be inedible. The woman above reported PB meals of fried mushroom and baak choi. Go vegan or go home.

Restrictions are lifting though with rumours of more relaxations coming in August.

I truly believe the ship has sailed. If these rumours are true (and Iím very doubtful they are given the incoming CEís background and political stance), how will Cx fill the flight deck? Last I checked the captain numbers on the 777 were eerily close to double digits. Wonít be long until they all have an aircraft each.

Glad itís not my problem anymoreÖ

There may be Relaxations for passengers. But there will be no Relaxations for Crew for the foreseeable future certainly. Crew are the enemy and the sole cause of the 5th Wave so they need to be punished. Clearly Crew are not Patriots. Please be guided accordingly.

The CHP and Hong Kong government have already stated numerous times it was a person in quarantine that caused the 5th wave, not CX crew.

But relaxations for the crew have happened. 747F has gone from full quarantine after flights to now not required. Medical surveillance days and PCR requirements have also been reduced. How can you say no relaxations for crew are occurring? (albeit slowly)

Compulsory Closed Loops. It used to be voluntary.
So, you see, things have got MUCH worse. Much, much worse.
AND, in addition, there is no longer a post Closed Loop quarantine allowance because there is no longer a requirement to provide an incentive to volunteer for Closed Loops. Because they are now compulsory.
I think this would be described as a Win/Win for the company.

404, Sadly, it doesn't matter whether it is Crew or Foreigners in quarantine, we're all the same. Someone needs to be blamed. We're it.

Never seen it on the Papers though, not a press release from cx or the AOA, the public perception is very different, taxi drivers still refusing me a ride when in uniform sometimes.

Well if you read Dim Sum Daily or such trash, sure. I've actually seen the SCMP state it a few times now that it was a local woman in 21 days quarantine that started the latest wave, not that I'd call the SCMP the bastion of truth either. As for taxi drivers refusing to pick you up? I personally haven't had any issues with either taxis or Uber. Personally if a taxi driver did do that to me, I'd at least take a photo of his taxi and if posible his taxi driver ID and report him to the Transport Department. Might make life difficult for him for a while and make him think twice before doing that again. At the end of the day though, I really don't care what people think. I know what the truth is and that's what counts.
