An update on Hong Kong's situation - as of late August there are still very strict social distancing measures in place. All gatherings of more than 2 people are banned in public places.
While there are ways WLM participants can work without being physcially outside - such as digitising old photos - there are still public health concerns surrounding the contest. Therefore, we are monitoring the social distancing measures imposed by the government.
If such measures are not relaxed substantially 2 weeks prior to 1 October, we may need to cancel the contest in Hong Kong.
