New Taipei to fine vendors and shoppers up to NT$15,000 for not wearing mask in public markets

New Taipei will fine both vendors and consumers who will be found not wearing mask and not having their temperature checked upon entry at  night markets, traditional markets, and shopping districts according to City Mayor  Hou You-yi.

Hou said that policy violators, may it be a vendor or a shopper, could now face a fine of NT$3,000  to NT$15,000.

However, Taipei Deputy Mayor Vivian Huang does not impose the same penalty to enforce the policy in Taipei and said that the city would do its best to persuade people to wear mask when heading to markets.

She went on to say that every local government has its own way of enforcing laws and regulations and that Taipei City will plan everything out before putting related regulations in place.

Meanwhile, Taiwan’s Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) has  ordered national parks, recreational areas, night markets, and temples to enforce crowd control measures and required both vendors and customers at marketplaces to wear masks since April 10 to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
