The school will provide students and teachers in other classes with rapid test kits, according to orders from the health department.”

Parent in Taoyuan: “( Reporter: “When did you get notified to come in for PCR tests?”) This morning. (This morning, did you know that school is going to be off for a while?) Yeah, starting today. (Starting today, are you worried?) Yeah, of course, I haven't experienced this before.”

For other classes that do not have direct contact with confirmed cases, school will be off for seven days. Individuals would need to do either PCR or rapid tests depending on the development of the infections at school.
