Fu Jen Catholic University Survey for Prevention of Spread of COVID-19

In accordance with announcement 1090100030 by the ROC’s Ministry of Health and Welfare on 15th January, the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) was classified as a Category 5 communicable disease. FJCU is concerned about the well-being of all staff and students, as we work together to safeguard a healthy campus. In dealing with the COVID-19, FJCU is working in tandem with directives from both the government and the Education Ministry, which requires the filling in of a survey. From now until the end of the epidemic, all students and staff are required to fill in the daily health status form. If there is a recent personal travel history (from January 20th) it is also necessary to report by the school/government with regard to your health status.

Personal Information Protection Statement: All personal information collated via this survey would be used by the school/authorities for the purpose of prevention measures vis-à-vis communicable diseases. Please fill in the survey with accurate information. Withholding of information may lead to legal action.
