the jump in mobility and infection risks after the four-day Tomb-Sweeping
Festival, National Chi Nan University has tightened its coronavirus preventive
measures in line with the COVID-19 guidelines issued by Taiwan’s
Ministry of Education for academic institutions.
the start of the semester, NCNU has been conducting weekly sanitation campaigns
and air-circulation checks that focus particularly on shared public spaces,
such as classrooms, dormitories, cafeterias, libraries, restrooms, and
laboratories. These practices will be enforced even more stringently as
students and staff repopulate the campus after the end of the four-day weekend.
hereby requests that all members of the campus community must remain vigilant
and self-monitor for any possible COVID-19 symptoms within the next two weeks. These
symptoms range from labored breathing to the temporary loss of smell.
practices include vigilant washing of hands (with soap), wearing a mask, social
distancing, refraining from group events, and taking daily temperature checks. Please
remain at home and alert the school if any potential symptoms surface.
in accordance to the Taiwan Central Epidemic Command Center’s social-distancing
rules, NCNU will require all members of the campus community to wear a face
mask when the tenet of “keep a distance from others of at least
1.5 meters in indoor environments and 1 meter in outdoor ones” cannot be met. This
mask-wearing necessity extends to crowded and confined areas like laboratories
and conference rooms that have less air flow.
these requisites will be slightly relaxed for gatherings that assign seats and
maintain a trustworthy record of attendance, participants engaging in activities
that require dialogue or physical contact will still be required to put a face
mask on. During the global COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing must be
followed to prevent community transmission and protect oneself and others.
