Hong Kong’s Ocean Park reopened on Saturday after more than four months of closure due to the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

Visitors had to wear a mask and undergo a temperature check before entering the attraction, as part of the amusement hub’s measures to guard against Covid-19.

To guard against the contagion, the park has resumed operations at 25 per cent of its capacity, which amounts to a maximum of 9,000 guests a day, for the first two weeks. It plans to gradually increase that to 50 per cent.

The capacity of rides and facilities have also been halved, while a small number were closed because of hygiene concerns.

The resort will only run six days a week, except Tuesdays, until July 31.

The legislature last month approved a HK$5.4 billion (US$692 million) bailout plan to keep it running for another year.
