It is anger and incomprehension that reigns in Hong Kong. The reason: the non-quarantine imposed on Nicole Kidman when she arrived in the region. Because of the coronavirus, all new arrivals normally have to go through a mandatory three-week quarantine. However, the rules don’t seem to be the same for everyone. Indeed, as reported by The Guardian, the actress was exempt from this quarantine. The Trade and Economic Development Office has confirmed that the Australian star and other members of the film crew have been granted an exemption for “specific professional work.” Nicole Kidman had traveled to Hong Kong for the filming of an Amazon series, Expats, of which she is the executive producer.
Arriving on Hong Kong soil on August 12, 2021, all his actions are particularly scrutinized. Thus, everyone could see that she had not had a mandatory quarantine since she was seen shopping two days after arriving. On social networks, this decision has made particularly crazy the inhabitants of the financial center who can no longer live with very harsh conditions for several months already. Thus, they did not understand why the 54-year-old actress was entitled to a waiver.

In addition, this exemption granted to Nicole Kidman came only a few days after the government made the decision to tighten its rules for arrivals from several countries. Elizabeth Quat, a pro-Beijing MP, said she was “worried about this exemption granted by the government” and admitted having “received a number of complaints from residents of Hong Kong”.
