CECC to bring back ban on migrant workers during the period of Lunar New Year

The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) already approved the entry of migrants workers to Taiwan but its head suggests that the entry ban will reurn during the period of Lunar New Year.

The entry ban of migrant workers will be reintroduced during a two-month span starting from December 14 up to Feb. 14.

Health Minister Chen Shih-chung has suggested reimplementing the current restrictions on overseas contract workers for the period surrounding the holiday.

Chen made the remarks while addressing members of the Legislature's Social Welfare and Environmental Hygiene Committee.

Taiwan's Ministry of Labor has not yet commented on Chen's suggestion on if they will propose a new plan.

Government agencies estimate that around 40,000 Taiwanese are expected to return home for the weeklong Lunar New Year holiday from Jan. 31 to Feb. 6.
