Taiwan launched specialized taxi service for mandatory quarantine-bound travelers

Travelers entering Taiwan from locations that are subject to home quarantine regulations by the country will be required to use a new "epidemic prevention transport service" instead of public transportation.

The regulation starts from March 4 and by March 11 fines of between NT$100,000 to NT$1 million set to take effect for violators, Central News Agency reported.

The service is for accommodating the travelers arriving daily from China, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Italy and Iran which are under mandatory home quarantine, accordin to Taiwan's Transportation Minister.

Travelers who take public transportation to their quarantine locations will face fines of NT$100,000-NT$1 million according to the minister in a press event of Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

The government has contracted the services of 1,200 taxis operating from all Taiwan airports. Rubbing alcohol will be provided for the driver and passengers, while vehicle sanitation costs will be covered by the government.
