Campus Restrictions: Kyushu University
Thank you for your understanding and support regarding changes to operations at Kyushu University.
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, Fukuoka Prefecture has issued a request for residents to refrain from non-essential outings from April 20 through May 19. The Japanese government has also declared a state of emergency for the four prefectures of Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and Hyogo starting April 25.
Under these circumstances, we ask for your help in preventing the further spread of COVID-19 and to protect the health of not only our students, faculty, and staff but also local residents and visitors to our campuses. Whenever possible, refrain from accepting visitors from prefectures in areas where a state of emergency has been issued as well as areas where priority measures are being taken to prevent the spread of disease, and consider holding conferences remotely in areas where COVID-19 infections are rapidly spreading.
Please note that we will carefully consider the necessity of campus visits by anyone from outside the university. If you do visit campus, we ask that you keep the length of your visit to a minimum and give the utmost consideration to preventing the spread of COVID-19 infection.
Access to Kyushu University Hospital shall be allowed in accordance with the hospital's action guidelines. Use of Ito Clinic is not subject to this notice. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. (Last updated on May 6)
