(3) Precautions on campus

[1] Be sure to wear a mask.

* A non-woven fabric type mask that has a high infection prevention effect is recommended, but if it does not fit your constitution, a urethane or cloth mask may be used. In either case, be sure to cover your nose with a mask.

[2] Carry out proper cough etiquette.

[3] Be thorough in washing hands with soap frequently, as well as disinfecting hands as necessary.

[4] Maintain enough space between people (1m or more). Also, be sure to leave a particularly large amount of space (2m or more) when conversing or speaking.

[5] For extracurricular activities and work, please use online systems or email and avoid having people assemble in close contact whenever possible.

[6] When meeting face to face or taking a class in a classroom, wear a mask and ensure proper ventilation.

[7] Check “Campus Entry Possibility RegardingCOVID-19” if you have cold symptoms such as fever or abnormal sense of taste or smell.

In addition, please take your body temperature at home before commuting to school or work. Your body temperature will be taken when entering the campus at a temperature checkpoint. If your temperature is 37.5 or higher, you will not be allowed to enter campus.

[8] Keep as much individual distance as possible for meals.

 

(4) Keep in mind daily maintenance of health

Enhance immunity by following a well-regulated lifestyle (balanced diet, enough sleep, moderate exercise).

It is also important to take your temperature twice daily (morning and evening) and understand your daily state of health in order to prevent the spread of infection. Keeping a log of your activity will be useful in an emergency.

Please use the "Health Management and Activity Log Sheet" for daily records.

 

(5) About extracurricular activities, dining with friends, etc.

For extracurricular activities, please use online systems or email and avoid having people assemble in close contact whenever possible. In addition, please avoid dining or drinking/having parties with friends and group trips with many people, such as circle trips, and pay special attention to infection risk when doing practices, visits, or lodging together for extracurricular activities.

 

 

2. Infectious disease prevention measures on campus

The university is taking the following measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among students, faculty, and staff. In addition, announcements will be made before and after classes encourage everyone to act appropriately.

(1) Cleaning and disinfection

Places people touch, such as doorknobs, light switches, elevator buttons, and handrails, are disinfected i In the regular cleaning of classrooms, sports facilities, administrative offices, etc.

In the event that someone connected to campus is diagnosed positive for COVID-19, appropriate disinfection will be prepared in accordance with the instructions of a healthcare center.

 

(2) Placement of disinfectant

Disinfectant for hand sanitizing has been placed at entrances and exits of each building, in classroom corridors, within classrooms, and at the entrances of dining halls.

Disinfectant and paper towels (disinfecting wipes in some cases) have also been placed so that users can disinfect chairs and desks in classrooms, AV equipment for classes, and computers in computer classrooms before and after use.

 

(3) Thorough ventilation

In addition to operating ventilation equipment installed in each building, the university is working to install ventilation equipment in classrooms. As natural ventilation is also important, the university has made it known to all faculty and staff to ensure that windows in buildings and rooms that can be opened and closed are opened regularly for ventilation.

Classroom doors and windows are also opened during classes.

 

(4) Droplet prevention

Clear partitions and plastic curtains have been installed to reduce risk of infection during face-to-face reception services, such as at administrative office counters. Clear partitions and plastic curtains have also been installed in dining halls and common areas, which are also cleaned regularly.

In addition, clear partitions have been installed in all lecture rooms where face-to-face classes are held, and face shields have been distributed as necessary to teachers who conduct face-to-face classes.

 

 

3. Response to cases in which positive diagnoses are confirmed for students, faculty, or staff

The university will be notified of the result if a student or faculty or staff member has been diagnosed positive. If the person who tested positive has entered campus within a certain period of time, the following measures will be taken.

(1) Investigation of activity history on campus

After contacting the local healthcare center, the university will conduct the following investigation according to instructions.

Hearing with the person diagnosed positive (to check circumstances such as their contact with a positive person who caused the onset of symptoms, their activity history on campus, and whether they wore a mask)

Identification of close contacts on campus

Measures such as prohibiting campus entry of the person diagnosed positive (including those who have come into contact with them as necessary)

 

(2) Measures to prevent the spread of infection

Based on the results of the investigation and guidance or directions from a healthcare center in (1) above, the university will take necessary measures depending on the situation, such as disinfecting or closing facilities and suspending face-to-face classes. However, if there have been instructions or directions from a healthcare center, the university will follow them.
