Consider this: passengers can of course do whatever they please prior to boarding for Hong Kong, and then test and quarantine for three days on arrival.

Bravo Bufe1, proprio cos. Soprattutto se davvero fanno la JFK in due in piena WOCL, non sta n in cielo n in terra. Non sarebbe permesso neanche a un camionista di fare cos tante ore di fila.
