Release date: 2021.06.02



To Kyushu University Students, Faculty & Staff: 

The state of emergency in Fukuoka Prefecture has been extended until Sunday, June 20, during which time university guidance levels will remain at “Level 2: Restrictions (Low).” 

Pay special attention to the following:

  • Cases of COVID-19 are increasing among young people, with some infections becoming severe, so we ask that you do not travel or go out if you have a fever or other cold-like symptoms.
  • If you have had close contact with someone suspected of being infected, please refrain from going out and report the incident to your department.
  • Do your part to prevent the spread of infection both on and off-campus by practicing proper hand hygiene, wearing a face mask, and avoiding the 3Cs. In particular, be sure to always wear a mask and refrain from talking when riding the bus or other public transportation.
  • Avoid restaurants and bars that have not responded to closure requests.
  • Refrain from activities that pose a high risk of infection, such as karaoke, eating and drinking in groups, and having picnics outdoors.
