Rail, inter-city bus travelers required to wear masks from April 1

All members of the public must wear masks on trains and inter-city buses from April 1, Minister of Transportation and Communications Lin Chia-lung (林佳龍) said Tuesday.


The move to curtail the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus is crucial, particularly in anticipation of the traffic surge around the April 2-5 Tomb Sweeping Festival, Lin said after an inspection of the country's high-speed rail and regular rail services.


In addition, the ministry said, all 12 high-speed railway stations, 239 Taiwan Railways Administration stations, 1,298 post offices, as well as airports, ports, freeway service areas, and bus transfer stations will check passengers' temperatures.


In cases where a forehead infrared thermometer detects a temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius or an ear thermometer registers 38 degrees or over, the person's temperature will be checked a second time and they will not be permitted to enter the venue if the reading remains at that level, Lin said.
