HK Quarantine Support Group is probably the most active Facebook page in Hong Kong for expatriates and locals to share their ongoing quarantine experience with others. Many have lamented over the rigorous 21-day quarantine period implemented by Hong Kong government and shared their unpleasant experience at the local designated quarantine hotels. One netizen named Romi Gill who is believed to be undergoing quarantine currently complained about the scaffolding erected outside Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel & Towers at 20 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. He said that the scaffolding affected the mental health of quarantined persons due to obstructed sunlight. Some of the quarantined persons also received notice with regards to ongoing maintenance and renovation work. Quarantined persons have to bear with the noise pollution caused by drilling and hammering during the day in addition to the solitude.
