Night Market in Kenting to Reopen on Trial Basis 墾丁夜市防疫預演 明晚起試營運3天

Kenting Night Market is reopening on a limited trial basis. An epidemic prevention drill was held on July 15 ahead of the reopening. There are now quotas on the number of stalls and visitors, a required distance between stalls, and limited entrances and exits.


Kenting has eased the autonomous restrictions that have been in place for two months, allowing vendors to get back to work. The local night market, a popular tourist destination, held an epidemic prevention drill on July 15 ahead of its trial reopening on July 16.

Vendor1:”We can barely make a living. (You're going to be forced to eat dirt soon.) Yes.”

Vendor2:” What's there to stress about? It's been like this for over two months now. I'm numb.”

Apart from daily disinfection, a distance of 1.5 meters between stalls will be required. The number of stalls will also be capped at 200. The 1-kilometer long market will only have two entrances and exits, and anyone that enters will have to have their temperature taken and complete contact tracing registration. In addition, there will be a visitor quota of 1,000.

Vendor3:” We will follow the central government's regulations. Really looking forward to the reopening day but a bit nervous too.”

Although night markets around the island are gradually resuming business with takeout service, Kenting's night market decided to wait until now to reopen. The township office says it will ensure all regulations are being met during the three-day trial reopening and the status of the market will be reviewed 

 

 

墾丁大街上,攤商冒雨將攤車一台台推到定點停好。自主停業2個月終於迎來微解封,可以做生意讓攤商鬆一口氣,但墾丁夜市是熱門觀光景點,擔心人潮成為破口,夜市15號早上進行防疫預演,準備16號晚上開始試營運3天。

攤商1:「快過不下去了啦生活。(都快吃土了) 對啊。」

攤商2:「煩惱什麼,都已經(停業)2個多月了,已經麻痺了。」

生意要顧、防疫也要顧。除了每天做清消,攤位跟攤位之間拉出1.5公尺間隔,攤位數也減少到200攤以內,全長大約1公里的攤販區,只留南北2個出入口,進出要量體溫、實聯制,人流也要控制在1千人以下。

攤商3:「照中央的防疫措施,期待又怕傷害。」

雖然各地有不少夜市之前就陸續開放、讓民眾外帶,但墾丁攤商擔心外界的觀感,只好等到微解封後才提出申請,鎮公所表示,官方會用最高規格檢視夜市,試營運的3天若不符防疫規定,下週一檢討時就會喊停。
