TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Less than one week after the epidemic alert was lowered to Level 2, Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) head Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) said on Sunday (Aug. 2) that the center has been examining data to determine whether to relax or tighten restrictions after Aug. 9, CNA reported.

During the Level 2 alert running from July 27 to Aug. 9, the number of people gathered indoors at one time cannot exceed 50, while up to 100 are allowed at outdoor events. Indoor dining in convenience stores and supermarkets is allowed, weddings can be held, and group tours with fewer than 50 participants may operate.

However, certain facilities and activities remain off-limits, including mountain cabins, large-scale indoor exhibitions, and swimming.

When asked whether large-scale exhibitions will be permitted after Aug. 9, the CECC head said this question is still unresolved but that it will be considered.
