Taipei, Aug. 17 (CNA) A delegation of Czech officials scheduled to visit Taiwan in late August will have to test negative for COVID-19 before their flight, but they will be exempt from quarantine upon arrival, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said Monday.

The delegation, which will be led by Miloš Vystrčil, the president of the Senate of the Czech Republic, will consist of some 90 business leaders, scientists and legislators. They will visit Taiwan from Aug. 30 to Sep. 4.

The COVID-19 control and prevention measures that will be taken for the trip will be based on those used earlier this month when representatives from the United States and Japan visited Taiwan, CECC spokesperson Chuang Jen-hsiang (莊人祥) said Monday.

The specifics, however, are still being worked out with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Chuang said.    [FULL  STORY]
