Taiwan to relax face mask rules in a well-ventilated outdoor open spaces

Taiwan to relax the mandatory wearing of face masks because of the low number of domestic cases after hitting several 0 cases according to Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

CECC is thinking about easing rules requiring people to wear a face mask when outside their residence, mainly for outdoor spaces where there are few people.

Several government agencies have relayed to the CECC complaints from people about having to wear face masks when there is only one or a handful of people around, such as a farmer working in a field or a family on a hiking trip, Chen said.

The relaxing of the rules would allow members of the public to remove their masks if they are in "well-ventilated outdoor open spaces" that have few people, but did not directly respond to a question about relaxing mask rules indoors.

Taiwan's Level 2 COVID-19 alert will be extended as announced by CECC head and Health Minister Chen Shih-chung.

Meanwhile, visitors at night markets would still have to wear masks and would not be allowed to eat while strolling around.
