Migrant workers from Philippines, 3 other nations to undergo COVID-19 test after 14-day quarantine


 All categories of migrant workers arriving from Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand would be required to take a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for COVID-19 when ending their 14-day mandatory quarantine.


Taiwan's Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced the new rule and is effective immediately to all foreign domestic workers.


All foreign domestic workers to stay in centralized quarantine facilities after entering Taiwan, receive a mandatory test upon ending quarantine and perform self-health management for seven days.


CECC head Chen Shih-chung added that “industrial migrant workers from Thailand and Vietnam will also be required to take a PCR test when ending quarantine, and continue to practice self-health management afterward.”


The government will pay for the tests, so all migrant workers from these countries are to be subject to a mandatory PCR test when ending their quarantine.
