That is according to Hoffman Ma Ho Man, an executive from one of the investors in Macau peninsula casino hotel Ponte 16, which operates gaming under SJM Holdings Ltd’s licence.
Mr Ma, deputy chairman and executive director at Hong Kong-listed Success Universe Group Ltd, noted that the property was ready to accommodate that requirement.
GGRAsia has approached Macau’s casino regulator, the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau, asking if such segregation for Hong Kong bubble participants would apply on all Macau gaming floors. We had not received a reply by the time this story went online.

Those with that code would have movement restrictions during their trip, including that their stay at a Macau hotel would only be on a designated floor, according to Macau’s Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre in a Thursday press briefing.
