Thorough Inspection of Tainan City Quarantine Hotels: Enhanced Safety Protection for All Citizens

Following the recent outbreak of COVID-19 infections at Novotel Hotel, Tainan City Mayor Huang Wei-che announced a series of heightened measures to curb new infection cluster and protect the safety and health of citizens. To prevent cluster infection from occurring in Tainan, Mayor Huang stressed the importance for all agencies to stay vigilant, thoroughly carry our pandemic prevention and control measures, and strengthen the management of quarantine hotels


Currently there are 19 quarantine hotels in Tainan with totally 561 rooms. To further raise the awareness of epidemic prevention and control, starting from this Monday (May 3) for three consecutive days, Tainan’s Tourism and Travel Bureau and Public Health Bureau have conducted joint inspections on all quarantine hotels in Tainan. Inspectors verify that quarantine guests are separated from regular guests, quarantine areas are compartmentalized, activity routes are well-managed, guest rooms are disinfected, public areas have surveillance cameras installed, and that all employees implement self-health management measures, including daily temperature-taking and reporting to the Public Health Bureau. Hotel staff members are also encouraged to get COVID-19 vaccines for enhanced protection.


Mayor Huang once again called on citizens to practice hand hygiene and cough etiquette. If you are unable to maintain social distancing in public, you should wear a mask at all times. For those who have visited locations at a given time announced by the CECC that confirmed cases were present, please practice self-health management for 14 days. When entering Taiwan, if you have fever, cough or other uncomfortable symptoms, please voluntarily contact the quarantine personnel at the airport and port authority and cooperate on the epidemic prevention and control measures. Once you enter the country, you should practice 14-day home quarantine. During this period, if you have suspected symptoms, please contact the Public Health Bureau at once and follow their instructions to seek clinical help. Please do not take public transportation. When you see the doctor, please make sure to notify the doctor about your TOCC information (travel history, occupation, contact history, and cluster history) for timely notification, diagnosis and testing.
