Taiwan to maintain border control or entry restrictions despite lowering to Level 2 Alert

Taiwan restrictions will be relaxed to allow more social activity after the current COVID-19 alert is lowered to Level 2 but will still maintain tight border controls.

"The lowering of the COVID-19 alert level was because the local outbreak has been brought under control. However, we will still keep tight border control measures in place," Health Minister Chen Shih-chung said.

"Although we will not relax border controls, we will begin to think about a better way to manage people who are fully vaccinated," Chen added.

Taiwan has implemented stricter quarantine rules because of the spread of the Delta variant of the coronavirus abroad.

Level 2 alert will remain in place until at least Aug. 9 but that the measures will be adjusted depending on the COVID-19 situation in Taiwan.

Local governments have the right to allow adjustments to the new guidelines, under special circumstances.
