Deputy County Magistrate Chen Cheng-Sheng assembled relevant bureaus and offices to meticulously review the implementation and feasibility of various COVID restrictions under the condition of partial easing of restrictions, and make decisions that takeaway and food delivery are still encouraged, including the catering industry and food streets at department stores. All should be in line with the central government’s regulations. In addition, to respect the wishes of the tribe, Shuanglong Rainbow Suspension Bridge at the scenic area managed by Nantou County remains closed for now. Also, the QingJing Skywalk has been reopened with the carrying capacity lowered to 40% and maximum of 1,200 visitors allowed per day.

The central government announced that Level 3 alert will be extended from July 13 to July 26, with partial easing of restrictions at the same time. Deputy County Magistrate Chen said that although it is the goodwill from the central government, many businesses think such goodwill is like “some meat that can be seen but can’t be reached.” Even though some restrictions on indoor dining have been lifted with conditions, the rules of partial easing of restrictions are rather strict. From submitting epidemic prevention plans for evaluation to setting up dividers, reducing seating capacity and reinforcing crowd control, all of these will lead to an increase in cost. Moreover, there may be no need for all of these after two weeks. Also, disputes may occur while the police enforce epidemic prevention regulations, which are to be addressed by the central government, so that the public will be able to accept and follow it.
