If you haven’t heard from the University or from the news, and you are now out of Taiwan, please read the following information carefully.
The University has postponed the starting time of the semester from February 17 to March 2, 2020. The decision was just made yesterday, and the most recent announcement could be found at https://www.ntu.edu.tw/english/spotlight/2020/1800_20200203.html
Let me also remind you not to take your flight via Mainland China, Hong Kong, or Macau, or you might have to go on quarantine for 14 days. Relevant information could be found at https://www.ntu.edu.tw/english/spotlight/2020/1797_20200130.html
Since everywhere in the world is fighting against the Wuhan Coronavirus right now, if surgical masks are available, please bring some, as they are required now in many places, such as public transit and other crowded places.
We will also postpone the Consultation for Undergraduate Course Selection, which was to be held on February 14. I will make another announcement later.
If I have further updates, I will let you know as soon as possible. Do not hesitate to contact me, should you have further questions.
Wish you a happy stay with your family and a safe trip back to Taiwan!
