The COVID-19 cluster from a wedding banquet in Chiayi is now affecting schools in Yunlin County, with more than 90 students and faculty member undergoing home isolation.


Students lined up in front of the gym at 9:30 a.m. waiting to get tested. One of the teachers at National Beigang Senior High School is a family member of a COVID-19 positive case that is linked to the wedding banquet cluster in Chiayi. The teacher turned positive on the second PCR test. A total of 91 students and teachers are currently under quarantine for ten days while other 800 students and staff are quickly getting tested.

Chiang Yao-chi, Principal, National Beigang Senior High School: “The National Taiwan University Hospital Yunlin Branch is assisting us with the rapid tests. Homerooms and classes affected will be off tomorrow as we have professionals conducting thorough disinfection at the school.”

The Yunlin County Government said that students and staff from four other schools in Yunlin have also had contact with COVID-19 positive cases linked to the wedding banquet cluster. These four schools include Feisha, Shuitsanlin, Shalun, and Lunbei elementary schools. No positive cases have been found so far but school is off for them currently to prevent possible transmission.

Chang Li-shan, Yunlin County Magistrate: “We are taking utmost precaution in preventing COVID-19 in our community. If we do spot positive cases we will conduct PCR tests and large-scale disinfection as soon as possible. We would like to remind all students and school staff to please quarantine at home if any COVID-19 symptoms are experienced.”

The Yunlin County Government further announced that schools within the county would be required to stop classes for ten days if any positive case is found. If one-third of the schools within the county find positive cases then all schools within the county should stop classes for a period of time in order to prevent further spread. 

 

 

 

 

今日上午9時半,學生排隊進入體育館進行快篩,受到嘉義喜宴傳播鏈影響,北港高中一名老師是確診者同住家人,經PCR檢測二採轉陽性確診,共有91名師生從今日起居家隔離10天,全校800名師生今日上午緊急進行採檢。

北港高中校長江耀淇表示:「今天全天由台大雲林分院這邊來幫我們做全校快篩,快篩完之後,明天做停課,做全校全數的消毒工作。」

雲林縣府表示,受到嘉義喜宴傳播鏈影響,縣內有4所學校的師生與確診者足跡重疊,包括四湖飛沙國小、水林水燦林國小、口湖下崙國小與崙背國小,都採高規格防疫進行預防性停課。

雲林縣長張麗善指出:「過程當中只要有確診案例,一定會採取最嚴謹態度,不只是環境清消,包括隨即進行PCR檢測,也呼籲只要有任何症狀的師生都能夠在家裡做居家隔離。」

雲林縣府強調,為了要防堵疫情,防疫規範採取最嚴格作法,只要學校內有任何一位師生確診,該校就會停課10天,若一鄉鎮只要有三分之一學校停課,該鄉鎮就會全面停課,避免疫情再擴大。
