Ministry of Economic Affairs made an announcement during the press of the Central Epidemic Command Center on June 6, that 5 major measurements of people flow control will be conducted: checkpoints at entrances and exits, limited number of market-goers in a market, practicing name registration, social distancing, and traffic control when needed.

        Traditional markets have been the hotspots of the COVID spreading in the north. As a result, the City Government requests the vendors and customers to wear masks and practice name registration. It’s encouraged for costumers to divide themselves into two groups based on their last ID number according to odd or even numbers.

        In response to the coming Dragon Boat Festival, the Economic Affairs Department of the City Government called a meeting on dissemination of pandemic control to traditional Markets and the control of people flow, participated by the Police Bureau, East District Office, West District Office, Civil Affairs Department, Transportation Department, and Public Works Department. The meeting has agreed on the dissemination and the control of people flow around markets. Name registration is also needed. The East District Office and the West District Office are in charge of the dissemination with the assistance of village chiefs.

        The City Government suggests that people decide what to buy before heading to the markets, avoid lingering and practice social distancing, in order to lower the chance of the transmission through crowds and social gatherings.
