Dear KAS Families,
Our Response Team continues to meet daily to monitor the global COVID-19 situation and adjust our school program to keep students and our community safe. As the situation evolves worldwide, The Taiwan Center for Disease Control shares updated information about travel bans, quarantine measures, and self health management requirements.
KAS requires all students, faculty, and staff to adhere to these requirements. Any student, faculty, or staff member required by the guidelines to undergo quarantine or self-health management must remain off campus during the 14-day period of the requirement.
KAS 要求所有學生，教職員都能遵守這 些規定。任何學生，教職員依據這些據準則，如果被要求進行隔離或是自主健康管理就表示必須離開學校14日。
As the countries included in these restrictions have increased greatly in recent days, we want to update you about currently the affected countries:
PRC, Hong Kong, Macau: Any who have entered/transited through these areas will be subject to mandatory 14-day home quarantine upon arrival. Students, faculty, or staff subject to these restrictions should please notify your principal, and please not come on campus during the 14 days.
South Korea, Iran, Italy: Any who have entered these countries (transit not included) will be subject to mandatory 14-day home quarantine upon arrival. Students, faculty, or staff subject to these restrictions should please notify your principal, and please not come on campus during the 14 days.
Thailand, Singapore, Japan, France, Germany, Spain: Arrivals from these countries (transit not included) must conduct ‘self-health management’ for 14 days. Students, faculty, or staff subject to these restrictions should please notify your principal, and please not come on campus during the 14 days.
This is the most comprehensive list available at this time. Please note that more and more countries are being added recently, and the most current information is always available at www.cdc.gov.tw/en
As a reminder, we will require all students, faculty, and staff to complete a travel questionnaire before we resume classes after spring break.
Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our community safe. Together we have done a great job so far, and we must remain vigilant as we move forward.
