Covid-19 prevention: Upgrade remote learning courses
To lower the risk of Covid-19 contagion, NTHU will increase the number of online learning courses from May 12 to Jun 8. All courses with more than 100 students are recommended to use the remote learning mode (either synchronous or nonsynchronous). For those courses that cannot implement the remote learning mode, such as laboratory, operational, or sport courses, the instructors are advised to keep the classroom ventilated and seats 1.5 meters apart.
Dear Faculty, Students, and Staff :
The COVID-19 RT-PCR test and serological test reports of our students who had close contact with a person diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia were all negative.
Even though the campus is safe, the domestic epidemic situation is still rising recently. Our university has enhanced various prevention measures. Students, faculty and staff should observe those measures together, such as keep social distance, wear medical masks in airtight spaces, and wash hands thoroughly and constantly to keep our campus safe.
Dear Faculty, Students, and Staff:
Recently, several students of our university were placed in home isolation due to close contact with a person diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia. The health authorities have examined the case carefully and determined that the case should have been infected for a long time abroad (IgG antibody positive). Since the case had already been quarantined for 14 days on entrance to our country, the health and education authorities have decided that the courses taken by those students in home isolation do not need to be suspended or changed to online courses. The courses can still be conducted as usual. As for those students in home isolation, online teaching has been arranged so that they can learn without interruption. The current epidemic prevention measures of NTHU are handled in accordance with the instructions of the health authorities.
The confirmed case and his contacts are undergoing diagnostic tests. If safety can be confirmed, NTHU will lift relevant control measures in accordance with the instructions of the health authorities.
If the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has further instructions, NTHU will immediately take corresponding measures accordingly.
To ensure a safe campus, the university has already disinfected the areas that those in home isolation had visited.
In response to the rising domestic epidemic situation, please observe the following measures to keep our campus safe: keep social distance, wear medical masks in airtight spaces, practice good personal hygiene (e.g. wash hands thoroughly and constantly, wear masks, and measure body temperature), track personal whereabouts, etc.
If symptoms such as fever, respiratory symptoms, abnormal smell or taste occur, please contact the Division of Health Services 03-5743000 (Monday to Friday 08:00-17:00) or Student Assistance Division 03-5711814 (24 hours) immediately.
At the same time, please mind your discussion of the epidemic situation not to violate the Infectious Disease Prevention and Control Law. Any information regarding the epidemic infections should subject to the announcements by the Central Epidemic Command Center.
