NSRRC Preventative Measures for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
(updated on 2020/10/20, effective until 2020/12/31)


* NSRRC will uphold any and all measures announced by Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (CDC) when tackling conditions not addressed in this document.

Entry & Exit Control
1. NSRRC staff:
While continuing to operate as usual, make sure to follow the attendance rules specified for the pandemic and the CDC's preventative measures for COVID-19.
2. Users, visitors, external technicians/constructors, and outsourced staff holding a temporary badge: 
- Enter and exit the NSRRC campus through the main gate ONLY. Before entering the campus, it is mandatory to have the temperature taken by security guards, and to fill out the "Health Declaration Form" (real-name system employed), and to obtain a visitor pass. Access to campus is not permitted if a fever or signs of a respiratory disease are detected. 
- The services of shuttle buses, taxies (including gypsy cabs), and food delivery can ONLY be done at the main gate if the drivers choose not to fill out the "Health Declaration Form" (real-name system employed).
3. Non-NSRRC staff who dine in NSRRC cafeteria:
Enter and exit the NSRRC campus through the main gate ONLY. Before entering the campus, it is mandatory to have the temperature taken by security guards, to fill out the "Health Declaration Form" (real-name system employed) and to obtain a visitor pass. Access to campus is not permitted if a fever or signs of a respiratory disease are detected.

Personnel Access Control: for users and visitors entering Taiwan from foreign countries/regions
1. Must provide proof of staying in Taiwan for the preceding 14 days before entering NSRRC. The 14 days are counted from the next day of arriving in Taiwan.
2. Must present the proof of a self-pay COVID-19 RT-PCR test, with a negative result, before entering NSRRC.
3. Anyone who is eligible to apply for shortened quarantine periods in Taiwan must present this special permit and the proof of a self-pay COVID-19 RT-PCR test, with a negative result, before entering NSRRC. The proof of staying in Taiwan for the preceding 14 days before entering NSRRC is thus not required.

Note:
1. NSRRC reserves the right to deny the entry, or cancel the beamtime allocated to those who fail to comply with the preventative measures. NSRRC shall not be responsible or liable to anyone for any financial or other loss due to their failure to comply with applicable COVID-19 preventative measures.
2. Those who are required home quarantine can contact CDC for a collective quarantine facility at their own cost if they do not have a proper accommodation for quarantine. Those who are required self-health management should find their accommodation. NSRRC will not provide accommodation service to them.
3. To apply for shortened quarantine periods in Taiwan, please see the "Regulations Concerning Short-term Business Travelers' Applications" at https://www.cdc.gov.tw/Category/Page/QRHGhEDI4_a4wbknqJ8KXw.
