COVID - Taiwan | 3+4 Self-health management

We’re traveling and trying to figure out what the rules are on the 4 of 3+4. Can you go to work? Can kids go to school? I can’t find a definition of what’s allowed in self-health management.

You can go to a supermarket if you wear a mask.

and leave your cellphone at home.

I think if I remembe correctly…just stay out of places that have a lot of folks & can’t social distance: hospitals, public transportation, busy supermarkets and etc. I believe all tracked by cellphone. Wear mask at all time when out and “a-boot.”

No.

I was assuming this was the case, but do you have a source? Are rules national now or is it city-by-city?

Are you asking about the mandatory quarantine when you arrive for your kids? I believe kids also have to abide by the quarantine rule 3+4. National law I believe. I don’t se them allow the kids to go to school and spread possible covid.

Those were the old rules for self health management. 3+4 self health management is much stricter. I believe you can go to work, but other than that it’s just essential places only, like supermarkets.

Hmmm… to me seems like this should be spelled out somewhere instead of a lot of conjecture. This is the closest description I could find in Chinese:

(1)無症狀者:可正常生活,但應避免出入無法保持社交距離、或容易近距離接觸不特定人士、或無法落實佩戴口罩之公共場所等場域,禁止與他人從事聚餐、聚會、公眾集會等近距離或群聚型活動;延後非急迫需求之醫療或檢查,如需外出應全程配戴醫用口罩;勤洗手,落實呼吸道衛生及咳嗽禮節;每日早/晚各量體溫一次。

It seems like you can have a “normal life” but avoid situations where you’d have to remove your mask or eat food, etc. Doesn’t say anything about work, study, etc., etc.

Some more background on this… I did ask when I came in and they said to call the hotline and ask, so that’s what I’ll do, but it sure would be nice if more of this was spelled out.

At this point, I’d be surprised if the “coming from abroad” infection rate is higher than the “sick here” infection rate, but I could be wrong.

I tried to find accurate info when I was doing self assessment a few months back but my dedicated health government agent just told me to avoid public area without getting into too much details. I think she was annoyed by me.

Damn… I was excited thinking that this might’ve been a new Tango42 topic that needed saving.

Oh well. I’ll give it a 10-like badge instead.

Can we go to apply for ARCs? On facebook someone said they did but then someone else said they shouldn’t have.

Since the NIA is not a place of work, I would say “no.” Wait until after the 3+4 if possible, or just phone them,
