In addition, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) of Taiwan has announced that beginning 00:00 May 4 (Taipei Standard Time), inbound travelers returning from overseas should complete the COVID-19 Health Declaration and Home Quarantine Notice and confirm if their residence satisfies the home quarantine requirements before boarding.
Inbound travelers should stay at a quarantine hotel after entry if they live with people 65 years old or older, children 6 years old or under, or persons with chronic diseases (such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes or lung diseases) or if they don’t have a separate room (including a separate bathroom). The new measure is to be implemented to prevent an infected traveler developing symptoms during home quarantine from infecting his or her family members living together. Those who make a false health declaration will be fined up to NT$150,000.
