HONG KONG—Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said on Tuesday the government will expand a “vaccine bubble” from Feb. 24 to include venues such as gyms, cinemas, and libraries.

Only vaccinated people would be allowed into those venues.

Lam was speaking at a weekly press conference a day after health authorities confirmed a fifth case of Omicron in the local community from a cluster at a restaurant that was spread by an infected pilot.
