CECC extends level 2 alert
The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) is extending its current level 2 coronavirus alert until at least September 20 due to the continuing confirmation of domestically transmitted cases with unknown sources of origin.
However, restrictions on seating arrangements on trains operated by both the Taiwan Railways Administration and the High Speed Rail Corporation are being eased.
Both rail carriers are now resuming the sale of reserved tickets for all seats.
But a ban on the sale of unreserved and standing only tickets remains in place and eating and drinking also remains banned on all trains.
Up to 80% of the seats on a tour bus will also now be available to passengers.
As many as 80 people will be permitted to gather for indoor events and 300 people at outdoor events.
And national scenic spots and amusement parks can now allow admission to up to 80% of their capacity.
However, train and tourbus passengers as well as visitors to scenic areas or amusement parks will still be required to wear face masks at all times.
