Swimming now allowed at beaches in New Taipei
New Taipei Mayor Ho Yo-yi has announced that the “conditional opening” of water-related recreational activities and supporting measures begins today.
Ho said the conditions include an appointment system, real-name registration, temperature checks, single entrance and exit point for shower rooms, and 50% reduction in crowd sizes.
Before resumption of business at these venues, employees must be vaccinated or test negative for the virus on a rapid antigen test.
After each session, the owners of the venue must ensure that the area has been cleaned and equipment disinfected.
If there is a confirmed case, Ho said the business must halt operations for three days to carry out extensive disinfection.
