【Updated Date: June 5th】

Taiwan's Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced zero new COVID-19 cases, marking 54 days without a new domestice infection, and nearing the CECC's target of four 14-day incubation periods to relax nationwide epidemic prevention measures. The total number of Taiwan cases still remains at 443.

Out of 443 total confirmed cases, 352 were imported, 55 were local, and 36 came from the Navy's "Goodwill Fleet." Up until now, 7 individuals have succumbed to the disease, while 429 have been released from hospital isolation. This leaves only 7 people still undergoing treatment for COVID-19 in Taiwan.

The CECC is planning on monitoring how the relaxation of epidemic prevention rules goes starting June 7, before considering opening the doors to international travel. Discussions will be held on how to shorten quarantine times while still ensuring safety.


【Updated Date: May 27th】

Up until today, Taiwan goes 45 days without new cases of domestic transmission. Taiwan considers early lifting of restrictions if no local coronavirus cases by June 7 provided that personal protection measures are still in place. People would still have to wear face masks if they cannot keep a safe distance from others or when using public transportation. They would also have to give their names and contact details at gatherings and events. Under these terms, it means that there would no longer be any restrictions on the number of people gathering in one place.
So far, the policies for foreigners entering Taiwan remains the same. We will keep monitoring the situation and keep you all posted.
Keep practicing good hygiene and keep healthy.
