The Letter from NTUE Regarding COVID-19
Dear NTUE students,
To reduce the risk of community infections of COVID-19, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) has set up guidelines for “social distancing,” that people may maintain social etiquette, and meanwhile, keep social distancing from others. The CECC specifies that at any gathering, if students keep a safe distance from others, and follow health monitoring procedures, ex: sticker policy, temperature check and entry control, then students can make their own decisions as to wearing a mask or not.
At gatherings, as long as attendees are healthy, each one keeps a safe distance from others, and the place has good ventilation, you are not required to wear masks. To reduce risk of virus transmission, all attendees must keep a safe distance from others. In case they are unable to do so, they must wear masks.
As for attending a class or a gathering for a necessary purpose, and you are expected to interact or talk with each other at a short distance, you must wear masks.
We would like to request that each of you follow the procedures below:
1. NTUE is strictly implementing social distancing. If members are unable to keep at least 1.0 meter from others when outdoors, or 1.5 meters indoors, they must wear masks. Labs and seminar rooms are not open spaces, and people tend to have closer interactions, thus they are required to wear masks.
2. NTUE will do our best to monitor its members’ health condition and implement necessary health education. Other than taking the temperatures of NTUE members, we also kindly remind you that if anyone has a fever, difficulty in breathing or loses their sense of smell or taste, you must stay at home, report to the university right away and get medical care.
3. From now till April 30, NTUE will disinfect its entire campus more often and keep every indoor space well-ventilated. Most importantly. We urge you to keep your hands clean by washing them often, and avoid unnecessary travel or gathering.
Thank you for your cooperation.
