Update on COVID-19 situation in Taiwan

Taiwan’s swift response to COVID-19 has been very successful in controlling the spread of the pandemic. Taiwan quickly closed its borders and used contact tracing to control the spread of the pandemic. Businesses have been able to remain open by using aggressive precautionary measures like taking temperatures, wearing masks and providing sanitizer before patrons can enter business establishments. Throughout, Taiwan has not imposed any lockdowns. To date, Taiwan has registered just over 500 cases (the majority are imported) and seven casualties. The impact of COVID-19 on Taiwan’s economy and daily life has been much less severe in comparison to most other countries.

Commercial travel to Taiwan continues to be restricted and requires permission from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO). 14-day quarantine is required for all travelers to Taiwan from Canada. For this event it is recommended that you have your local representative manage your booth and gather leads on your behalf.
