This is an important announcement regarding referral cases approved to a hospital facility in the Republic of China (ROC) Taiwan. The Healthcare Fund (HCF) is advising the public that on May 14, 2021 - China Airlines (CAL) announced that it will be cancelling a total of seven (7) flights effective May 22, 2021 to June 15, 2021 between the Republic of Palau and the Republic of China (ROC) Taiwan. Additionally the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) made an announcement on May 15, 2021 that in response to continued severity of COVID-19 in Taiwan and an increasing level of community transmission shown by cases of unknown source of infection as well as cluster infections in Taipei City and New Taipei City, it would raise the epidemic level to level (3) and would strengthen related measures effective May 28, 2021. This means that Taiwan is now urging people to reduce unnecessary movement between areas as there are ten or more domestically transmitted cases from unknown sources in one day.

Therefore, all Palau approved referral cases pending travel to ROC Taiwan will be placed on temporary hold until new travel announcement from China Airlines is released and upon new information received from Taiwan Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC). If you have been approved for referral care in Taiwan and confirmed all travel requirements with the Healthcare Fund, we ask that you maintain communications with your attending physician regarding your condition at all times. The Healthcare Fund will continue to communicate with the travel agency (CAL) for any information and updates regarding flight schedules and work with Taiwan hospital facilities for admission requirements as approved by the CECC. At this time, we strongly advise the public to stay safe and avoid unintentional injuries that might require immediate evacuation to an off-island hospital facility.
