Kyushu University to Lower Guidance Level
Release date: 2020.10.26
To Kyushu University Students, Faculty & Staff
Kyushu University is asking members of the university body to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) as detailed in the Kyushu University Guidance.
As was previously announced, in light of the current situation and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's announcement that in-person classes and full-scale research activities may resume, we have established new “Level 1.5: Partially” restrictions for the “Kyushu University Guidance for Preventing the Spread of the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19),” which will take effect as of October 20.
The details of each action are as follows:
While giving the utmost consideration to preventing the spread of COVID-19 infection, it will be possible to conduct research activities on campus after carefully considering methods that take into account the specific needs of each research field.
Classes will be taught using a combination of in-person and remote classes while giving the utmost consideration to preventing the spread of COVID-19 infection.
Student Extracurricular Activities
Students, groups, and clubs will be allowed to conduct extracurricular activities after they have been requested to take the utmost precaution to prevent the spread of infection (compliance with infection prevention guidelines, etc.).
While giving the utmost consideration to preventing the spread of COVID-19 infection, we recommend staggering working hours for those who have been allowed to resume educational and research activities on campus. If it is recognized that your work, including on-site response, will not be impeded, you may continue to work from home.
Visits to Campus
While giving the utmost consideration to preventing the spread of COVID-19 infection, we will allow visits to campus as deemed necessary, keeping the length of visits to a minimum.
Although guidance levels have been lowered, we are still in a situation where we must guard against the spread of infection, and we ask the university body to continue to comply with guidance restrictions and work to help prevent the spread of infection.
