Taiwan's Central Epidemic Control Center (CECC) has made available 400 beds at several quarantine locations for the use of migrant workers who must undergo home quarantine for 14 days, based upon their needs.
From Thursday, foreign nationals have been barred from entry into Taiwan, a drastic measure adopted by the CECC as part of efforts to stem the COVID-19 pandemic.
As of Friday, Taiwan had confirmed 135 cases of the coronavirus disease, of which 102 were imported, with two fatalities.
The entry ban does not effect migrant workers who are currently overseas and have re-entry permits. However, they will have to self-quarantine for 14 days upon their return to Taiwan.
