Taipei requires people to wear a mask in public markets and have a body temperature check

Taipei Deputy Mayor Vivian Huang said that the Taipei City government yesterday started requiring people going to public markets to wear mask and have their temperature check upon entry.

Unlike New Taipei, the city will not fine vendors who will fail not to wear their mask said Taipei Market Administration Office Director Chen Ting-hui. He added that vendors in Taipei have so far been cooperative.

During a site interview at Guangfu Market in Xinyi district, Huang said the city is to run unscheduled inspections at markets to ensure the measures are followed, which should not be a problem with Taiwan’s ample mask supply.

Huang also stated that the city is attempting to attract workers through the Taipei Department of Labor to perform temperature checks at market entrances.

Meanwhile, New Taipei City government had announced on Wednesday that market vendors who do not wear a mask at work would be fined between NT$30,000 and NT$60,000 for violating the Act Governing Food Safety and Sanitation.
