CECC urges against visiting crowded places over Lunar New Year period
Taipei, Jan. 27 (CNA) People should avoid going to crowded places over the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday in light of the recent domestic spread of COVID-19 in Taiwan, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said in a set of guidelines for the holiday released Thursday.
During the holiday period, people should avoid going to crowded places or enclosed spaces with poor ventilation, the CECC said.
If eligible, individuals with weaker immune systems, such as those with chronic diseases, seniors, pregnant women, babies and infants, as well as those who wish to visit such individuals, should get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible, the CECC said.
During such visits both parties should wear masks, the CECC said.
Individuals are also advised to minimize the number of people they dine with and follow disease prevention measures adopted by the restaurants they visit, the CECC said.
Anyone who develops COVID-19 related symptoms should see a doctor immediately and not take public transport, the CECC said.
