Taipei City Government began accepting application for reopening from pubs and clubs on May 19. On May 21, a total of four businesses received the green light after undergoing joint safety inspection and attending a class on real name registration apps at police precinct.

According to Deputy Mayor Huang, clubs permitted to reopen must implement the real name registration framework, where customers must either have their original ID card or ARC card scanned, or provide their personal information along with a picture of their NHI card or driver's license. The data will be uploaded to the city government's database and retained for one month before being deleted. Customers who do not have the aforementioned IDs will not be admitted.

Taipei City Police Department local precincts will monitor the implementation of real name registration for club and bars during patrols. Violators will be fined in accordance with the Communicable Disease Control Act. Those accumulating three citations will be punished with one-month business suspension.
