Taipei, March 18 (CNA) Taiwan will impose its highest Level 3 travel warning on the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand starting Thursday, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said Wednesday, though the effects of the move will be largely superseded by a separate policy mandating 14-day home quarantine for all arriving travelers.

At a press briefing, the CECC said the Level 3 warning urges people to avoid non-essential travel to the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand, due to increased risks posed by the coronavirus disease COVID-19, which has spread at a community level in all four countries.

Under the warning, people arriving from travel to, or airport transit through, the countries will be required to home quarantine for 14 days, the CECC said.    [FULL  STORY]
