Taipei, April 5 (CNA) Everyone who completes mandatory 14-day home quarantine must now undergo an additional seven days of self-health management, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said Sunday, amid increasing concern over asymptomatic cases.
The new measure went into immediate effect Sunday and applies to everyone who completes 14-day home quarantine, compulsory for those entering Taiwan on or after March 19, Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (CDC) chief Chou Jih-haw (周志浩) said.
People undergoing the seven-day self-health management are required to minimize time spent in public, wear a surgical mask and practice common hygiene to avoid infecting others.
