12/1起推新措施 健身房納入強制戴口罩場所

《公視新聞網》報導

Running on treadmills, pedaling on spin bikes and lifting weights, many early risers are trying to burn calories and gain muscles. Inside the gym, majority of them are not wearing face masks. Starting December 1, fitness gyms are included in the venues where a face mask must be worn. Violators could be fined from NT$3,000 to NT$15,000.

踩飛輪、跑步機揮汗燃脂,重訓強化肌耐力,一早健身房就有不少民眾健身,不過多數沒戴口罩。從12月1號起,健身房納入強制戴口罩場所。

Previous regulations put forward by the Central Epidemic Command Center required people to wear face masks in 8 categories of places, including healthcare facilities, public transportation, places of consumption, places of learning, sports and exhibition venues, entertainment venues, among others.

As a preventative measure to curb a second wave of pandemic in fall and winter, starting December 1, those who fail to wear masks in these contexts and do not heed requests to do so will face fines of between NT$3,000 to NT$15,000 for violating the “Communicable Disease Control Act."

curb (v.) 控制;限制,約束;抑制

為防止秋冬第二波疫情擴大,下個月1號起,強制戴口罩,勸導不聽者,將依違反「傳染病防治法」,由地方政府裁罰3千到1.5萬元。

CECC also said if there is a need to eat or drink in certain enclosed settings, masks can be temporarily removed on the condition that a proper social distance is maintained. If appropriate barrier equipment is in place, then people can remove the mask when exercising.

a need (n.) to 需要
enclosed settings 封閉設置
be temporarily removed 暫時移除
on the condition that… 條件是…
maintain a proper social distance 保持適當的社交距離

不過,指揮中心表示,有些場所,如果能保持社交距離,可在飲食期間,暫時取下口罩,或健身時,有適當阻隔設備,也可不戴口罩。
