The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) says people arriving in Taiwan will faceslightly less restrictive protocols on where they can stay beginning on 1 September.


According to centre head Victor Wang, after entering Taiwan and remaining in quarantine for the standard three days, travellers will be allowed to spend the four-day "self-initiated epidemic prevention" period on a one person to a room basis. They will also not need permission to change locations.


The CECC says in order to meet the new standards, a person should have one room and one bathroom reserved for their use only and booking a non-quarantine hotel room during this period will remain prohibited.


During the self-initiated epidemic prevention period, people should only go out when necessary and after testing negative using a rapid antigen test the same day or the previous day.


People are permitted to take public transport and go to work during the four-day period, but may not go to school.


Arrivals must currently complete both the three- and four-day periods on a one person per residence basis and need to apply for permission from local authorities if they wish to spend the two periods at different locations.
