In light of a growing COVID-19 cluster in Taiwan, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) on Sunday (March 27) announced new rules to tighten COVID-19 prevention at specific entertainment establishments, which are allegedly fraught with dodgy activities, such as karaoke halls, dance halls, nightclubs, bars, special beauty parlors, special coffee shops, and tea houses.

According to the new policy, all employees and customers at these establishments are required to adhere to disease prevention measures.

 

The NPA will work together with local governments to tighten COVID-19 prevention by forming a joint steering group with relevant authorities and plan missions to demand people and all business owners to cooperate with the government's pandemic prevention policy so as to maintain the normal function of life and economy.  

 

The NPA emphasizes that any covid-19 breaches shall be referred to the local governments to issue penalties. Meanwhile, all the police officers on the frontline should take preventive measures to ensure their safety on duty.
