DOH: Taipei City’s COVID Update for June 5

Chart on guidelines for individuals testing positive on home kitsThe Department of Health (DOH) announced that 4,452 new domestic COVID cases were reported for Taipei City on June 5. As of June 4, 47,501 people are under stay-at-home care and 5,428 individuals are under managed home isolation. 
According to DOH, the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall vaccination station continues to offer vaccination service over the Dragon Boat Festival Long Weekend to meet the needs of children during this period. For parents who made reservations for their kids via Taipei City’s Vaccination Booking Platform, the agency reminds them to show up at the scheduled time and bring both the kid’s NHI card and a signed statement of intention for the doctor to conduct assessment.
Despite the drop in confirmed COVID-19 cases over the past week, the drive-through clinics at Beitou-Shilin Science Park and Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall still provide screening, diagnosis, and medication pickup for individuals with symptoms or positive rapid test result. DOH reminds patients to register online before showing up to save time and avoid crowded lines.
Starting June 6, young kids with birthday on or after September 2, 2015 can receive a free 5-pack rapid screening home kit at pharmacies offering real-name registration vending service. Those planning to purchase public-funded discount rapid screening kit should remember to check the last digit of their ID card (even/odd) for eligible purchase weekdays.
In addition, the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control’s Digital COVID-19 Certificate website has added a new function allowing relatives who live with confirmed cases to download home isolation certificate. For confirmed cases who have filled out the self-reporting contact-tracing form between May 1 and 25, they can add information regarding relatives living in the same household (http://pbbs.cdc.gov.tw) for certificate download (maximum of 10 people).
DOH reminds the public that despite the drop in new confirmed cases, people should still observe practices such as wearing face mask and maintaining social distancing.
