TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — With thousands of Taiwanese having visited crowded tourist attractions over the Tomb Sweeping holiday, Taiwan's Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said Monday (April 6) that companies in the country should start introducing flexible working hours for their employees.
During the daily updates of Taiwan's coronavirus cases, Health minister and CECC head Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) stated that the Ministry of Interior (MOI) has started allowing its staff to arrive at the company at different times to minimize the risks of transmission clusters on public transportation. He said many government agencies are planning to take similar measures in the next few days.
According to New Talk, the MOI now gives its employees the liberty to arrive at the company between 7:30-9:30 a.m. and leave between 4:30-6:30 p.m. The ministry has also assembled an emergency response team to handle any coronavirus-related issues.
