It has become a norm to wear face masks on subways and buses, and in other public spaces since the coronavirus outbreak, but there has been a raging debate over whether or not it is appropriate to wear them at the office.

自(新型)冠狀病毒爆發以來,在地鐵與公車上,以及在其他公共空間,戴口罩已成為一種常態。但關於在辦公室戴口罩適當與否一事,已有一番激辯。

 

Some say it is necessary for people to wear a mask at all times to protect themselves from the contagious virus, but others argue covering one’s face is considered ill-mannered.

有些人認為,人們有必要隨時戴口罩,俾保護自己免於遭接觸傳染的病毒感染。惟其他人主張,遮住臉部會被認為沒禮貌。

 

Yoon Hae-rim wore a face mask at her office in Seoul. But more than a dozen of people told her she was overreacting as there weren’t any infected people in the office. On the other hand, Lee Se-joong couldn’t decide whether or not to tell a junior staff member to wear a face mask as a safety measure because he was coughing and sneezing.

尹海琳(譯音)在她位於(南韓)首爾的辦公室戴口罩。但超過12個同事說她反應過度,因為辦公室沒有任何人遭感染。另一方面,李世中(譯音)則無法決定是否跟一名職場男後輩說要戴口罩作為防護措施,因為此人正在咳嗽和打噴嚏。
