Effective on November 1, visitors can stay in their original hotels.
This change represents yet another easing of the city's travel regulations.
The delay before infected travellers are released into the community won't be shortened by the alteration.
Only those who submit a negative test after testing positive can be let out of their quarantine hotels.
Every day, between 100 and 300 visitors to Hong Kong are found to have Covid.
Covid helped the city eliminate flight restrictions that had been implemented as sudden prohibitions on routes that brought in too many travellers.
