With the continuous rise of COVID-19 cases in Taiwan, wearing face masks when heading outside or going into any business establishments have now become mandatory across all areas.
In response to those who refuse to follow regulations, however, a local laundromat in Taipei decided to up the ante with a new sign in front of their store, asking all customers to wear a face mask before entering or they will be forced to take their temperatures for them.
In a twist of events, the owner wrote at the bottom of the sign that they only house rectal thermometers meaning it could very well end up to be a humiliating and uncomfortable experience for those who try to flout virus-prevention regulations.
The post which was shared to a Facebook group immediately attracted social media users’ attention with many saying it was a genius move to make sure all customers follow the rules.
Some jokingly questioned whether the rectal thermometer was for one-use only, while others commented that the funny sign could attract even more curious customers.
Though it is highly unlikely that the laundromat owners will follow through with their “threat,” everyone should still adhere to epidemic-prevention rules and wear face masks to curb further spread of the virus.
