Kaohsiung Port Increases Epidemic Prevention Measures 防堵疫情擴散 未完成2次篩檢禁入高雄港

Kaohsiung has also tightened its disease prevention measures around the Kaohsiung Port area. Additionally, Kaohsiung Metro has also announced it will stop selling one-way tickets starting from 29th to reduce contact risk. 


There was a long queue of container trucks early in the morning on the 28th at Kaohsiung Pier 34's control station. The Ministry of Transportation and Communications has enhanced Kaohsiung Port's epidemic prevention and control measures. All personnel who want to enter the port area must show their identity in addition to scanning the QR code. The certificate is compared with the APP developed by the port company. Those who have not completed two screening tests are not allowed to enter the port area.

Chang Chan-jung, Director, Harbor Management Dept., Kaohsiung Port: “Our control point can check if drivers have done a second screening. If drivers haven't done a second test, we will ask them to do a quick screening test at our screening station.”

In addition to strict entry and exit controls, screening stations at Pier 34, 36, and 55 control stations are also busy. At the city government's request, people who have been in and out of Chungtao Port Area or Cijin Shipyard since the 12th, and are at risk of exposure, must be screened by a PCR test on the 28th or 29th. 

However, it's not only the port that is increasing prevention measures. Lunar New Year is approaching, with a potential influx of tourists during the Lantern Festival. Kaohsiung Metro announced that it will stop selling one-way tickets starting on the 29th to the end of February to reduce contact risk.

Chang Chueh-wei, Senior Manager, Kaohsiung MRT: “We hope to reduce contact risk for everyone. Riders can use their own multi-payment, credit card, or mobile phone to enter the gate.”

Citizen: “It's safer because that way you don't have to touch the screen.”

According to statistics, only about 3 to 5 percent of Kaohsiung Metro riders use one-way tickets, but to ensure that groups such as the elderly that may not use a metro card or a credit card to enter the station, the Metro said such riders who need a one-way ticket can still go to a station service desk to receive assistance from its staff.
 

 

 

 

高雄34號碼頭管制站,28日一大早就看到貨櫃車大排長龍,交通部提升高雄港防疫力道,所有要進港區的人員,除了要掃QRcode實聯制,還要出示身分證,用港務公司開發的App比對,沒完成兩次篩檢的人禁止進入港區。

高雄港務分公司港務長張展榮說明:「做完第1次以後,沒有做第2次的話,我們在港口的管制站這個區域,我們就可以做一些攔查,如果你沒有完成的話,我們會就近請你在篩檢站這邊進行快篩。」

除了進出嚴格管制,34、36跟55號碼頭管制站等篩檢站同樣忙碌,因為市府要求,12日起進出過中島商港區或旗津造船廠等地,有接觸風險的人,28、29日要全面再次PCR。

不只港區繃緊神經,就要過年了,因應台灣燈會期間可能湧入大量遊客,高捷也宣布29日起到2月底,停止販售單程票,減少接觸風險。

高雄捷運資深管理師張玨瑋表示:「我們希望說可以減少大家接觸的機會,然後讓民眾可以使用自身的多元支付或者是信用卡,或者是說自己本身的手機,這樣的一個用具就可以進閘門。」民眾認為,「會比較安全,因為這樣就不用接觸。」

根據統計,高捷使用單程票的民眾大概只佔3到5%,但為確保像高齡長者等族群,可能不會用一卡通或信用卡等票證刷卡進站,高捷表示有單程票需求的人,還是可以到服務台由高捷人員協助進站。
