3-20 Case follow up
March 21, 2020
After careful investigation, Academia Sinica has determined that the colleague who
was diagnosed as a confirmed COVID-19 case on March 20 did not come to work on
March 18-19, and while at work on March 16-17 stayed inside the Institute of Physics
building without entering any other buildings. This colleague put on a mask and went
to see the doctor as soon as symptoms began to appear, and is now receiving
appropriate medical treatment. AS will continue to pay close attention to this case and
provide assistance. In addition, all people who came into contact with this colleague
have been notified, and are now being quarantined as well as tested by the staff of the
Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).
AS would like to remind all faculty, students and staff to stay calm and continue with
their regular activities while also paying close attention to their personal health.
Please be sure to wash hands regularly, stay at home if feeling ill, and wear a mask if
suffering from a cough.
With best wishes,
Academia Sinica Epidemic Control Task Force
