    Guidelines to Avoid Infection Risk while at Restaurants
    ⇒Refrain from using restaurants for extended periods of time, and avoid activities that increase the risk of infection, such as pouring drinks among each other, passing glasses around, talking loudly, and using karaoke facilities with inadequate infection prevention measures applied.
    ⇒When traveling or going on business trips across prefectural borders, infection prevention measures should be thoroughly taken, including avoiding the “3Cs.”

*Regarding the latest Kyushu U Guidance Level
To be announced on the Kyushu U website when it is ready. 

Although the infection situation in Fukuoka Prefecture has been on a downward trend, it does not mean that the COVID-19 pandemic is over nationwide. Infectious diseases are likely to flourish when the weather is cold, so we would like to ask all students, faculty and staff to continue taking all possible infection prevention measures.

Vaccination is expected to be effective in preventing the onset and severity of Novel Coronavirus infections, so if you have not yet been vaccinated, please consider getting vaccinated.
