National Pingtung University to Hold Classes Online for a Week 逾百學生參加台灣祭 屏大4/4-10遠距教學

The final day of the Taiwan Music Festival was canceled after one attendee tested positive. National Pingtung University has also shut down the campus for disinfection after it found out that numerous students attended the event.


Over 120 National Pingtung University students attended the Taiwan Music Festival over the long weekend. The festival, organized by the Pingtung County Government, was held in Kenting. Some students have been ordered to perform self-health management, and the school has shut down the campus for disinfection. Classes will be held online from the 4th to the 10th.

Chen Yong-sen, Chief Secretary, National Pingtung University: “We have over 100 students that have to perform self-health management after attending various events. We have decided to take the extra precaution of holding all classes online this week.”

School officials say the decision has been approved by the Ministry of Education and only authorized personnel will be allowed onto campus for the time being. The county government has also expanded testing capacity, setting up six stations at Golden Hospital in northern Pingtung; Mawlong Orthopedic Hospital in Chaozhou; and Nan Men Hospital, Hengchun Tourism Hospital and Hengchun Township Health Bureau in Hengchun. It is also distributing home test kits. As of the 3rd, over 800 PCR tests and close to 4,000 rapid tests have come back negative.

Chang Hsiu-chun, Deputy Director, Public Health Bureau, Pingtung County: “We got negative PCR results back for 835 people in the Hengchun area yesterday. We also handed out 3,940 home test kits at the Taiwan Music Festival.”

The third and final day of the festival was canceled after attendees began testing positive. Local businesses are lamenting the loss of business, but the Kenting Night Market Management Committee says strict disease prevention guidelines must be followed and it will continue with contact tracing.

 

 

 

清明連假第3天,屏東大學校內空蕩蕩,因為校內有超過120位學生,參加過屏東縣府在墾丁舉辦的台灣祭活動,也有學生被要求自主健康管理。學校決定校內擴大清消、管制進出外,4日到10日這段期間採取遠距教學。

屏東大學主祕陳永森說:「查到差不多100多位學生參加這次活動,有收到細胞簡訊,那需要進行自主管理。我們學校為了超前部署,所以我們決定這個星期,我們所有的課程用線上教學的方式進行。」

校方表示,遠距教學的部份已報請教育部同意,這段期間,學校採單一入口管制,非洽公者不得入校,希望維持最高防疫規範。

縣府則擴大篩檢量能,在屏北地區的國仁醫院、潮州茂隆骨科、恆春半島的南門醫院、恆春旅遊醫院、恆春鎮衛生等地共設6處篩檢站,同時發放家用快篩試劑,到3日為止,全縣PCR 800多人,快篩近4千人次,都是陰性。

屏東縣衛生局副局長張秀君說明:「昨天在恆春地區總共PCR的篩檢,有835人,全數陰性。另外我們在台灣祭的服務台,也共發出了3940劑的家用快篩。」

台灣祭活動預計舉辦三天,因有北部民眾連續參加2天後被通知確診,最後一天活動緊急喊卡。因應連假,2日晚上墾丁大街人潮滿滿,傳出確診消息後,3日晚上的人潮少了一半。業者感嘆說,生意受影響,但墾丁大街管委會強調,防疫不會鬆懈,遊客進入前還是得落實實聯制。
