USC Coronavirus Prevention Team Announcement

One of our adjunct teachers had been announced by the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) as a confirmed case of COVID-19 infection. Our school has, accordingly, given the following explanation and taken the following measures:
  1. The confirmed case is an adjunct teacher and teaching a class of nine students. All of the students are currently in good health condition.
  2. The adjunct teacher had been wearing a mask during classes at our school. Although the nine students and one teacher (who had close contact with the adjunct teacher) have no symptoms, they have returned home for self-quarantine and will not come to school for the next fourteen days.
  3. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Department of Health of Taipei City had visited our campus on March 30. It was found that the affected classroom area has proper ventilation and the risk of virus spreading is very low. The school will, however, perform a thorough disinfection over the entire campus from today on.
  4. In response to the epidemic and in compliance with our government’s epidemic prevention policy, all of the faculty, staff, and students of Taipei campus shall enter the school via a single entrance (i.e., the front gate at Building A) only after doing the body temperature control procedure and the scanning of personal ID card. In addition, all of the faculty, staff, and students shall wear a mask while on campus.
  5. Please manage your health properly by wearing a mask, washing your hand frequently, and measuring your body temperature. Be comfortable in your schooling and daily life. As long as all of us follow our nation’s epidemic prevention policy, we believe that the virus can be defeated and we will be able to get back to normal life soon.
