Confirmed cases of COVID-19 and the close contacts to COVID-19 should report to NCCU directly starting April 25. Our university will be in charge of compiling a list and submitt the information to health authorities, which will then issue an official quarantine notification to these contacts.
How to Determine a Close Contact for COVID-19:
The “3+4” quarantine rule
During the four-day period following quarantine, you have to take a rapid test every day. If you receive a negative result on the 4th day, you are allowed to go to work, purchase necessities, and take public transportation, but you are barred from entering NCCU campus.
Starting on the 8th day of the quarantine, if you tested negative, you are allowed to enter NCCU campus.
Individuals who receive a positive rapid test result should seek medical attention immediately without taking public transportation.
About COVID-19 rapid test kits
The sale of rapid test kits will be rationed from April 27. Under the government's rationing plan, you need to present your National Health Insurance (NHI) card or Alien Resident Certificates (ARC) to buy one test kit each on designated days.
The last digit of the identification card number will determine which days the holder will be able to purchase a COVID-19 rapid test kit.
The kits will be sold on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to people with an odd number as the last digit on their cards, while those with an even number will be able to buy the tests on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
On Sundays, the kits will be available to anyone who holds an NHI card or Taiwan government-issued ARC.
The 10 million packets that will be distributed each contain five rapid tests, which will be sold under the rationing plan at a controlled price of NT$500 (US$17) per kit.
Some 4,909 NHI-contracted pharmacies and 58 public health centers throughout the country will sell the rationed test kits,
