Taiwan warns vacationers nationwide to follow coronavirus prevention guidelines

Since people cannot maintain the proper coronavirus prevention guidelines of Taiwan, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) declared national-level alerts in the country's major tourist spots today (April 4), despite of the 4-day celebration of Tomb Sweeping Day Break.

The CECC said the public has been reminded to avoid crowded places and social distancing by two text messages rated as "national-level" alert which were sent through Public Warning System (PWS).

National-level alerts indicate public in a wide range of areas faces an immediate threat from disaster or danger.

"When visiting crowded places during the long break, remember to keep a distance of at least 1.5 meters when indoors and 1 meter when outdoors, or wear a face mask and wash your hands frequently," one of the texts said.

The CECC made the call after seeing clips and pictures of crowded people with many not wearing  mask in some tourist  spots such Alishan National Scenery Area, Dongdamen Tourist Night Market in Hualien, Wusanto Reservoir in Tainan, Xingda Fishing Port in Kaohsiung and several other places in Taiwan.
