CORONAVIRUS/Taiwan extends national Level 3 COVID-19 alert to June 14
Taipei, May 25 (CNA) Taiwan's nationwide Level 3 alert for COVID-19 has been extended to June 14, given the severity of the domestic transmissions, Health Minister Chen Shih-chung (陳時中) said Tuesday.
The Level 3 alert, which was first issued for May 19-28, means that all schools across the country will remain closed until June 14, said Chen, who heads the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).
According to the CECC's guidelines, the extension of the Level 3 alert also means the continued closure of public venues and business places, except for government offices and those that provide essential services such as medical care.
At those places that remain open, strict mask wearing and social distancing protocols must be observed, the CECC mandates.
