Dear NTU students and colleagues,

In response to the new infections among staff at the Engineering Affairs Office of the NTU Hospital and the upgraded Alert Level 3 nationwide, the University is reminding you all to suspend events of over 5 people indoors and 10 people outdoors. Also, starting May 20 until 28, please comply with the following preventive measures.

  1. All non-urgent laboratory work at the master’s and doctoral programs of the College of Medicine will be suspended. Except for those processing necessary work (e.g. payroll affairs), all faculty and staff of the College of Medicine should work from home (including mail room).
  1. As per night curfew entry control, swipe-in access should be implemented at all premises of the College of Medicine. Outside visitors will be denied access. Restaurants and commissaries will suspend operation and current construction work will be put on hold as well.
  1. All faculty, staff, and students are advised to refrain from entering the College of Medicine (including Basic Medical Science Building, Center of Genomic Medicine, School of Pharmacy, School of Nursing, and Museum of Medical Humanities) and NTU Hospital.
  1. Official exchanges between the College of Medicine, NTU Main Campus and NTU Hospital should all be suspended. Exchanges between staff at different premises should also be minimized.
  1. College of Medicine faculty, staff, and students working at the College of Public Health should stick to the same locations to carry out daily routines and decrease contacts with others. Do not go to other floors of the College of Public Health.
  1. The now suspended shuttle bus service between the Main Campus and the College of Medicine will continue.

As the COVID-19 is still wreaking havoc, the University will make necessary and prompt adjustments to existing measures according to the development of the latest pandemic situation. Please be reminded to wear a mask at all times when you go out, wash hands frequently, and keep appropriate social distancing. Be on alert for suspected symptoms: fever, respiratory complications, diarrhea, and abnormality of smell and taste. If they appear, please wear a medical mask, immediately seek medical attention at a nearby hospital for COVID-19 testing, and refrain from using any public transportation. When in the hospital for treatment, please voluntarily tell the physician your contact and travel history, potential occupational exposure to the virus, as well as people around you with similar symptoms. When you return home, please also wear a medical mask and avoid going out if not necessary.

Sincerely yours,

NTU Epidemic Prevention Team
