After the announcement of the MOWH Taoyuan Hospital Operation, the Taoyuan City Government (TYCG) has upgraded all epidemic controls. Under the direction of Mayor Wen-Tsan Cheng, the whole TYCG team implemented various epidemic controls to safeguard the national gateway without cessation. The Taoyuan Department of Environmental Protection (TYDEP) and the 33rd Chemical Group of the Armed Forces also completed two rounds of city-wide disinfection before the eve of Lunar New Year for citizens to enjoy a happy Lunar New Year without worries! Although the MOWH Taoyuan Hospital Operation has ended, epidemic control never stops and environmental disinfection is in intensive progress. During January 1-5 on the lunar calendar, the cleaning squadron of each district has dispatched staff to implement disinfection, in order to disinfect all campuses before the new semester begins.

According to TYDEP Director-General Dr. Li-Teh Lu, since the activation of the MOWH Taoyuan Hospital Operation, the TYDEP completed the first round of disinfection in collaboration with the 33rd Chemical Group between January 21 and February 2 to expand the range of disinfection to 400 hotspots in the epidemic routes of confirmed cases, including the Taoyuan Nanmen Market, Zhongping Sunset Market, Daxi Old Street and Taoyuan Metro Guishan Station. To ease the worries and anxiety of citizens, besides directing the TYDEP disinfection team, Mayor Wen-Tsan Cheng also coordinated with the 33rd Chemical Group of the 6th Army to provide support to ensure the environmental safety of Taoyuan City together. In the operation, a total of 1,148 persons were dispatched to safeguard Taoyuan and Taiwan. Before the pandemic ends, disinfection is still an important line of defense. The TYDEP started on February 3 another round of disinfection in crowd-gathering daily living sphere in collaboration with the chemical group.

According to the TYDEP, areas with crowded population and crowd gathering are the focus of the daily living sphere (including all leading temples) disinfection in the second round. The disinfection covered 450km and mobilized 1,250 persons in 34 major daily living areas, including the Taoyuan District Center, Taoyuan City Center, Kuaiji District, Zhonglu District, Puzi District, and Nankang and Dazhu in Luzhu District, Changgung and Huolung in Guishan District. The second round of disinfection in crowd-gathering areas was completed on February 10 before the eve of Lunar New Year for citizens to enjoy a clean post-COVID-19 lifestyle and welcome the Lunar New Year.

In response to the postponed new semester of schools below senior high (vocational) schools to February 22, the TYDEP activated campus disinfection in collaboration with the Armed Forces during February 12-19 to enhance environmental disinfection of the surroundings, outdoor areas opened for public access, including sportsground, basins and toilets, of 739 schools (including kindergartens) below senior high (vocational) schools.
