CECC urges public to observe social distancing and avoid crowded places

As crowds of people left their homes to conduct tomb-sweeping rituals during the four-day Tomb Sweeping Festival, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) urged members of the public to practice good personal hygiene, follow social distancing recommendations, and avoid going to crowded places after the festival. Members of the public are urged to wear face masks if they are unable to observe social distancing. The CECC also urged riders of public transport to wear face masks all the time and undergo temperature checks before entering a bus or MRT station. Those who refuse to wear face masks on public transport after being advised to do so will be fined up to NT$ 15,000. If people feel unwell, they are urged to wear face masks and inform the physician of any history of travel, occupation, contact, and cluster (TOCC) to facilitate timely diagnosis and prompt case-reporting.
