Statement on Employees with Confirmed Cases of COVID-19

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TSMC today (July 12, 2021) disclosed that three employees were confirmed with cases of COVID-19. Details are as follows:

 

The TSMC Epidemic Prevention Committee has traced over 100 people who were in close contact with these three colleagues diagnosed with COVID-19, and they are quarantining at home and undergoing PCR testing. In addition, using stringent standards exceeding government health regulations, TSMC expanded testing to another several dozen people who have been exposed to a lesser degree of contact. Besides immediately notifying them and disabling their access to company facilities, TSMC also provided them with test kits for home testing, and arranged for further PCR testing. Currently, TSMC has received test results for over 200 people and all results have been negative after initial testing. TSMC will continue to perform several rounds of rapid testing in the coming week to protect employee health and provide further support if needed.

 

TSMC has further expanded testing to several hundred people who shared the same areas with the three employees, as epidemic safety and protecting our colleagues’ health and safety is TSMC’s primary concern. TSMC will also further provide them with PCR testing and several rounds of rapid testing in the coming week, and will offer further support as necessary.

 

The aforementioned PCR tests are expected to be completed in the next two days.

 

TSMC has strengthened disinfection of the three employees’ working areas. This incident does not impact company operations. For further details, please refer to public information disclosed by the Taiwan government.

 

TSMC will continue operating in separated teams and enabling work-from-home according to procedure. In addition to strengthening anti-epidemic measures, TSMC will continue to watch how the epidemic develops and will adapt with rolling updates to procedures.
