A Filipina was issued a HK$5,000 penalty ticket after she was caught without a mask in Statue Square in Central on Sunday.

Philippine Consul General Raly Tejada shared a copy of the Filipina’s ticket on Facebook on Monday.

“Kawawa naman si Kabayan. Pinagmulta last Sunday ng $5,000 dahil di nagsuot ng facemask sa may Statue Square,” Tejada said.

[Translation: What a pity for our Kabayan. She was fined $5,000 for not wearing a mask in Statue Square.]

The Philippines’ top official in Hong Kong then reminded Filipinos to always observe social distancing and abide by mask-wearing guidelines.

It is required to wear a mask when entering public spaces, public transport carriers and MTR paid areas—save for country parks. Violators will be fined HK$5,000.
