Chaotian Temple Implements Mandatory Mask Policy|境外移入確診增 入朝天宮參拜須戴口罩


Taiwan's exported number of COVID-19 cases is on the rise, and the focus is back on disease prevention. On Aug. 6, Yunlin County's Chaotian Temple announced a mandatory mask policy for entry along with social distancing.


Mask-wearing Chaotian Temple workers ask devotees to don masks as they enter. Taiwan has seen a surge of exported COVID-19 cases to other countries in recent weeks, and the government has ordered mandatory masks in enclosed spaces.

(Regulations were relaxed) for a while and people stopped wearing masks. I think masks are still necessary.

The central government will enforces mask-wearing based on pandemic situation. We announced a mandatory mask policy on our website on the 6th.

The temple says it has also stepped up disinfection around altars and is asking devotees to maintain social distancing inside the temple. Nearby stores say they hope tourists can comply.

Of course you still worry. Everyone's in the same boat. The economy has tanked because of the pandemic. If everyone wears masks to prevent the pandemic from spreading -- this should just be the new normal.

The temple was named to the Central Epidemic Command Center's warning list of potential infection sites in April and crowds didn't return until June. Local stores hope tourists can do their part to keep the temple and local economy safe.



朝天宮廟方人員戴上口罩,一一提醒入廟沒戴上口罩信眾,需要戴上口罩才能入廟拜拜,近期因為國內持續出現新冠病毒境外移入案例,政府宣布密閉場所需要戴口罩,對此北港朝天宮6號也公告加強防疫,即日起入廟都須戴上口罩。

信眾表示:「前陣子有(鬆懈),大家出來比較沒戴口罩,那我覺得,基本上,其實還是要戴。」

北港朝天宮祭祀組組長 紀仁智表示:「中央會看疫情發展,有需要就要強制。那我們昨天(6號),已經在我們官網公告,所有的信徒,如果進到朝天宮來參拜,請戴上口罩。」

北港朝天宮表示,除了要求信眾帶上口罩,也會持續加強各神殿消毒工作,也在廟前懸掛布條,提醒民眾入廟戴口罩、保持安全距離,而附近周邊店家也表示,希望遊客來到北港都要配合防疫工作。

北港朝天宮商圈店家表示:「擔心也是會擔心,大家都一樣,因為疫情經濟變差了,如果可以,大家就戴上口罩,不要讓疫情再擴大,像平常生活這樣就好了。」

有商圈店家表示,今年4月疫情延燒,北港鎮朝天宮媽祖廟,曾被中央流行疫情指揮中心,列為「警示景點」導致人潮減少,一直到6月人潮才慢慢恢復,現在廟方加強防疫,也希望遊客、信眾來到北港需配合防疫,以免再被點名影響地方商機。
