There is one close contact listed by the health authorities, who is currently quarantined at home, to be confirmed by the health authorities.

Due to the surge in Covid-19 confirmed cases, namely thousands of people being tested positive, please be reminded that you can protect yourself from being infected by having a complete vaccination and booster, staying at home if unwell, wearing a mask and cleaning your hands regularly. Be heedful of suspected symptoms like fever, sore throat, respiratory complications, loss of smell or taste, diarrhea, etc. 
 

If any of the suspected symptoms appear (e.g., fever, sore throat, respiratory complications, loss of smell or taste, or diarrhea), please wear a medical mask and seek medical attention immediately at a nearby hospital. 
 

If you are a close contact of confirmed case or having a fever or other suspected symptoms, holding a doctor’s note while being a moderate/high-risk contact who hasn’t done a rapid antigen test given by medical centers, you may get a rapid antigen test kit for a quick check from the Office of Student Health and Counseling Center, and avoid using any public transportation. 
 

When in the hospital for treatment, please inform the physician regarding your contact and travel history, potential occupational exposure to the virus, as well as anyone around you with similar symptoms. When returning home, please continue to wear a medical mask and avoid making any unnecessary trips.
 

Sincerely,
