Holding of General Meetings by Companies during the period of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The detail of this page

With a view to combating the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government has introduced measures to implement social distancing, including making the Prevention and Control of Disease (Requirements and Directions) (Business and Premises) Regulation (Cap. 599F) and the Prevention and Control of Disease (Prohibition on Group Gathering) Regulation (Cap. 599G) (collectively referred to as “the Regulations”).

Cap. 599G prohibits group gatherings in public places unless exempted.  The prohibition is also applicable to group gatherings in event premises (as defined in Cap. 599F) regulated under Cap. 599F in which the relevant requirements or restrictions are not complied with.  Specified events (as defined in Cap. 599F) (including meetings) conducted at the event premises complying with the relevant requirements and restrictions may be exempted.  Details of the Regulations are available at the Government’s COVID-19 dedicated webpage at https://www.coronavirus.gov.hk/eng/reduce-gatherings.html.

This section seeks to answer some questions relating to the holding of general meetings by companies in the light of the Regulations.
