Educational and research activities, as well as administrative work on campus after 9:00 p.m., shall be conducted only when specifically deemed necessary.

In principle, refrain from travel and business trips in areas where a state of emergency has been declared.

【Requests for cooperation to prevent rebound of COVID-19】
Fukuoka Prefecture has asked the prefectural residents and businesses to follow the following instructions in order to prevent the rebound of COVID-19 outbreak.

When going out or traveling, please check the infection status of your destination and the infection prevention measures of the facility you are using, and choose a time and place that is not crowded.
Please refrain from graduation trips, thank-you parties, welcome and farewell parties, and no cherry blossom viewing parties.
We would like to ask for your continued cooperation in preventing the spread of infection.
