Earlier this month, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced a new policy requiring travelers returning to Taiwan to observe a 14-day home quarantine starting March 19. If an individual has been identified as a contact of a confirmed case, such individual is subject to a 14-day period of home isolation. During the home quarantine/isolation period, the individual is to stay at home or place of lodging, and persons living with the individual are to take adequate preventive measures, including practicing good health habits and keeping at least one meter away from the individual. Furthermore, the individual is to record his/her temperature and health status correctly. Relevant agencies will contact the individual daily to ask about the individual’s health status. If the individual feels unwell, the individual shall contact the local health bureau or the care and support center for quarantined/isolated individuals set up by each county/city government and seek medical attention as instructed; the individual shall not use public transportation.

The CECC reminded members of the public in home quarantine/isolation to stay within designated quarantine area and turn on their mobile phone. During the home quarantine/isolation period, the individual can ask his/her family members, persons living together or online shopping services to help deliver food, other groceries or products necessary for daily activities. If the individual lives alone, the individual can contact the care and support center for quarantined/isolated individuals set up by each county/city government. If suspected symptoms, such as cough or fever, develop, the individual shall contact the local health bureau or the care and support center for quarantined/isolated individuals of each county/city government, which will arranged medical care. If the individual seeks medical attention for other chronic diseases, the individual can consult with the doctor via video call and ask his/her family members to collect medications. The individual is to postpone non-urgent medical care, including aesthetic medicine and health checkups until the end of home quarantine/isolation.

The CECC also reminded members of the public that those in violation of related measures will be fined up to NT$1 million and put in group quarantine.
