Official Macao Health Code The new Tourism Law prohibits smoking inside all hotels in Macao. All guests staying in hotels and commercialised resorts must wear nicotine-dispensing smocks, be subject to heat checks, and sign a Macao Health Code. All resorts and hotels have strict prohibitions against smoking, as it is considered a dangerous "recreational addiction". The move, aimed at curbing the island's increasing rate of smoking, has caused several airlines to stop air travel to Macau. However, other international carriers have remained resolute to let go their flights to the tiny region. The new Macao law regarding smoking was published on Hong Kong Day, as Macao is hosting the annual World AIDS Conference from Hong Kong. Many delegates are expected to be affected by the new tobacco control policy implemented in Macao. The Ministry of Health of Macao states that nearly 30% of Hong Kong residents are ex-smokers. The new Macao health code is expected to reduce the spread of the deadly Hong Kong pandemic among Macauans. The International Federation of Associations of Hospitals and Environmental Health Experts, (IFAE), and the Ministry of Health in Macao held a meeting to discuss the issue of smoking in Macao in order to discuss ways to stop the spread of the deadly virus. The new MACao health code, which prohibits smoking in commercial establishments, was presented by the Ministry of Health. Smoking is also strictly prohibited at beaches and any other place with beach access. All forms of advertising and sales, including smoking, are strictly prohibited. The code also states that all resorts, hotels, clubs, and other similar institutions that stay in close proximity to the sea are expected to strictly observe the new policy. On July 14th, the government departments met again to discuss and further develop the macao health code system. During this meeting, the leaders of government departments expressed their intent to strengthen the implementation of the new Macao health code system. The delegates representing the various departments reviewed and discussed details of the new MACao Health Code system. They also discussed how the government departments could work together to strengthen the whole system. During the meeting, the mission stated that they have been working closely with the government departments to implement the system and hoped that the governments would work in close cooperation with the mission in the future. It is important that all commercial establishments located in Macao must adhere to the new macao healthcare code. If they do not comply with the new measures, these establishments must immediately inform the Department of Health. In addition to that, the establishments that fail to comply with the novel coronavirus surveillance requirements will soon be required to upgrade their equipment, which includes quilting machines and microchip systems. These upgrades will ensure that all establishments are adhering to the Macao Ministry of Health's new novel pandemic prevention measures. There are a number of hotels, guest houses, and other such establishments that were refused admission to the Macao Health code. These refusal hearings were held for reasons such as unlicensed businessmen being on board, unlicensed medical personnel on board, and the failure to submit records supporting the claim of unlicensed staff onboard. The Ministry of Health has now revised the Macao Health Code in line with this revised version of the Macao Laws. As a result, all establishments that were previously refused admission are now allowed to apply once again, as long as the conditions and procedures are strictly followed.
