As we continue to battle the outbreak, and while we wait for the vaccine to roll out for us all, more action is being taken by the Hong Kong government and the Department of Health to prevent, control and regulate the disease with strict social distancing measures and quarantine camps. And no, I’m not talking about the kind of camp with people singing around an open fire. I’m talking about a government facility put in place to confine and quarantine asymptomatic individuals that have any potential to spread the disease. Yes, now would be an appropriate time to curse profoundly.
Having said that, it’s important to understand that even though it’s not quite the staycation you were looking for, it is the best way to protect those around you and prevent further infection. So, with quarantine camp likely to become a more common situation, I thought I could help normalise the state of affairs (since I personally went through it myself – and survived) by helping you get through it too.
In this guide, I’ll walk you through the must-haves for your quarantine camp backpack, how to survive it all, and answer the myriad of questions you might have about it. But before I begin, allow me to remind you about the number one rule to surviving anything. No, it’s not how you can make fire by rubbing sticks together really fast – it’s all about remaining calm.
