【看英文中國郵報學英文】北市衛生局今(19)日宣布,自108年9月1日起,15家連鎖便利商店、咖啡店前公告之騎樓全面禁止吸菸,如有民眾違規,將依菸害防制法處新台幣2000元至1萬元罰鍰。

The Department of Health of Taipei City announced on Aug. 19 plans to ban smoking at the arcades in front of 15 convenience stores and coffee shops, violators would be fined from NT$2,000 to NT$10.000.

北市衛生局健康管理科科長林夢蕙指出,北市15家連鎖便利商店、咖啡店包括統一、全家、萊爾富、OK、美廉社等5家連鎖便利商店,及星巴克、85度C、路易莎、伯朗、丹堤、怡客、西雅圖、Cama Café、金鑛、彼得好等10家連鎖咖啡店。

The convenience stores include 7-Eleven, FamilyMart, Hi-Life, OK Mart and Simple Mart, while the coffee shops include Starbucks, 85 Cafe, Louisa Coffee, Mr. Brown Coffee, Dante Coffee, Ikari Coffee, Barista Coffee, Cama Café, Crown&Fancy, and Peter Better Cafe, the Health Management Division chief Lin Meng-hui said.

北市衛生局長黃世傑表示,過去僅規範少數戶外場所為禁菸場所,未將騎樓、人行道等戶外人潮聚集場所納入禁菸場所規範,為維護民眾不吸二手菸之健康權益,北市衛生局擴大建設戶外無菸健康環境,98年7月將北市24處公園、綠地納入禁菸場所,截至108年7月北市已公告建置2569個戶外禁菸場所。

Huang Shih-chieh, director-general of the Department of Health, said previous regulations only banned smoking in a few outdoor areas, excluding areas such as arcades and sidewalks where people frequently gather. To protect the public from second-hand smoking, the department has expanded cigarette-free outdoor spaces. Starting from July 2019, Taipei announced to ban on smoking in 24 parks and green areas; as of July 2019, there are 2,569 cigarette-free outdoor spaces in Taipei City.

黃世傑說,依據108年5月辦理民眾問卷調查統計結果顯示,支持便利商店、咖啡店前騎樓實施禁菸措施高達87.1%。

Huang added that a survey conducted in May this year showed that almost 9 in 10 people support smoking ban in arcades in front of convenience stores and coffee shops.
