Australian actress Nicole Kidman’s arrival in Hong Kong sparked widespread anger after she was reportedly spotted out and about two days after touching down.
The city has some of the strictest Covid rules in place, with up to 21 days’ quarantine required.
She is in Hong Kong to film a new show about the lives of wealthy, glamorous expats – already a source of tension as locals contend with increasing restrictions under the new national security law.
In response to questions about “overseas film personnel” and quarantine, the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau said that restrictions are waived “to carry out designated professional work”.
On social media, several people pointed out they have not been able to see family for months thanks to the restrictions.
