TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Changhua County police on Saturday (June 6) busted a scooter gathering of 11 people for violating the Level 3 COVID-19 alert rules.
The rules prohibit outdoor gatherings of over 10 people and carry a fine of between NT$60,000 (US$2,069) and NT$300,000 for each offender.
After mahjong parties recently became a source of COVID-19 transmission in the county, local police have stepped up crackdowns on social gatherings that go over the limits set by the Level 3 alert.
Changhua police received reports on Saturday that a number of people had ridden their scooters to a party at the 20-kilometer mark on Changhua County Route 139.
When police arrived at the scene, they found 11 people there and gave them all citations under the Communicable Disease Control Act. The fines will be determined and issued by the county’s Public Health Bureau.
