HONG KONG — The Hong Kong government has shortened the Covid-19 quarantine period for incoming travelers to three days, laying out measures to further simplify strict border controls, but fell short of what companies say is needed to restore its reputation as Asia’s leading global financial center.

Travelers arriving in Hong Kong will be allowed to leave designated quarantine hotels after three days, instead of the current seven days, officials announced at a Monday morning briefing. During this period, they said, they will not be allowed to enter places that now require vaccine passes, such as gyms, bars and restaurants.
