Measures being taken by Kyushu University to combat COVID-19
Release date: 2020.12.15
To All Kyushu University Students,
The number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise around the country. One of the factors causing this increase is the spread of “cluster infections.” Examples of where cluster infections can occur include dinner and drinking parties often attended by university students.
The government has provided the following “5 Situations” that increase the risk of infection.
Situation 1: Social gatherings with alcohol
Situation 2: Eating in large groups for prolonged periods
Situation 3: Conversing without a mask
Situation 4: Cohabitation in a confined space
Situation 5: Traveling between locations
We ask that Kyushu University students be especially cautious about attending parties where alcohol is involved. As people travel home for the new year holidays, there will be plenty of opportunities to consume alcohol.
If you do choose to go out or drink alcohol, please keep in mind the “5 Situations” mentioned above. Make sure to always wear a mask and to keep your voice down when speaking. Please avoid going out in large groups or for prolonged periods. (Underage drinking is, of course, against the law.)
Each of us needs to play our part in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We once again ask for your cooperation in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by taking basic measures to prevent the spread of infection, which include wearing a face mask, thoroughly washing your hands, and avoiding the “3 Cs.”
Visit the Cabinet Secretariat of Japan’s website at the link below for a summary of the “5 Situations” that increase the risk of infection.
