​Latest Guidelines and Anti-Epidemic Measures in Taiwan

    After elevating Taipei and New Taipei City epidemic alert levels to level three on May 15, 2021, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) has since declared the whole island of Taiwan to be under level three alert until June 14. Apart from encouraging civilians to stay wary and avoid social contact, the CECC has also released guidelines detailing related protocols instated under level three alert, which are as follows:
  1. Schools of all levels, tutoring centers and daycare services will be closed until further notice, and teaching will be conducted online. Employers should allow leave for workers who need to take care of children.
  2. Businesses who stay open must adhere to Covid-19 prevention guidelines.
  3. All members of the public are required to wear a mask at all times except at home.
  4. Cinemas, sports centers, libraries, exhibitions, bars and other adult or entertainment venues will remain closed.
  5. Gatherings of 5+ people indoors and 10+ people outdoors are prohibited.
  6. All restaurants are required to switch to provide take out/delivery service only.
  7. It is generally advised that the public stay at home and avoid unnecessary travels.
    Mayor Ko calls out for all citizens of Taipei City to wear a mask outdoors at all times, and also reminds that failure to comply will result in a fine of 3,000 to 15,000 NT dollars according to the Communicable Disease Control Act. Citizens are also advised to implement social distancing methods, and cut down on unnecessary outings whenever possible to prevent spread of the epidemic. Vaccinations at your nearest available hospital is also greatly advised.
    The TCPD also stands with citizens in these tenuous times, and would like to add that only through thorough collaboration between public and private sectors, can Taipei and Taiwan as a whole rise up and beat this grave challenge.
