More pandemic restrictions are set to be eased soon.
The Ministry of Health and Welfare says starting next Monday, masks will no longer be required for many indoor activities.This includes for sporting activities, singing, group photos, agricultural activities, or activities where a mask could get wet.However, health authorities still urge people to continue wearing masks as much as possible.At the same time, eating and drinking will be allowed on trains, in movie theatres, in KTVs, and many other venues.
In addition, adult entertainment venues may be allowed to reopen relatively soon.Bars, nightclubs, and other such establishments have been closed for months as part of Taiwan's efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19.The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) says businesses in these categories that do not have staffers accompanyingguests can conditionally reopen next Monday.Those that do have such services will have to wait until 19 November.
The CECC is still urging people to be on high alert against Covid-19, and to follow epidemic-prevention regulations as much as possible.
