Taipei City Deputy Mayor Huang discussed some of the general guidelines regarding the loosening of restrictions ahead of reopening more venues. The three conditions include: maintaining social distancing, real name registration for indoor activities and venues, and no group dining.

According to the deputy mayor, the only school campuses which remains off-limit to the public are the track and fields of middle and elementary schools. To ensure the safety of students, the reopening of these facilities will have to wait until summer vacation. Deputy Mayor Huang added that a number of major events either sponsored or co-sponsored by city hall have also eased restrictions. For outdoor activities, the cap has been increased from 500 people to 1,000 people; likewise, the maximum occupancy for indoor events has been raised to 250 individuals. Indoor events with more than 250 people will require approval on a case-by-case bases.

Due to the pandemic, many theatrical troupes face financial difficulties, as current guideline on seat spacing severely reduces profits of performances - in many cases each session sold results in a loss. Therefore, the city government is offering significant discount for venue rental to help performance groups return to the stages and bring the audience back.
