To Kyushu University Students, Faculty & Staff:
Following the extension of the priority measures to prevent the spread of the disease in Fukuoka Prefecture until Sunday, March 6, Kyushu University has decided to maintain its guidance level at “Level 2: Restrictions (Low).”
Although the number of daily confirmed new cases in Fukuoka Prefecture has started to decrease, it is still at the level of 3,000 to 4,000. In addition, the hospital bed occupancy rate as of March 17 was 84.5%, and we cannot assume that the infection status in the prefecture is coming under control. Therefore, we would like to ask Students, Faculty & Staff to thoroughly implement basic infection control measures and take more careful actions to prevent infection.
- If you test positive, be sure to check the checklist to see if there is anyone who may be a close contact and if so, ask them to stay home.
- If you have had contact with a person who has tested positive, please check the checklist to see if there is a possibility that you are a close contact, and if so, "stay at home.
- If you have any symptoms, please call in advance and go to a medical institution; if you test positive, please contact your department and your contacts; if you have had close contact with those who test positive, please stay at home.

- If any of your housemates are suspected of being infected, please note the following
- Separate rooms for those who are suspected of being infected and those who are not, and be sure to wear masks and disinfect your hands.
- If infection is suspected in infants or early elementary school children, please limit the number of caretakers and try to prevent infection on the assumption that the caretakers are also infected.
- Ventilate frequently and disinfect common areas that are touched by hands.
- Do not share towels, chopsticks, spoons, etc.
In the case of COVID-19 infection, some people are infected but do not show any symptoms. There is a risk of infecting others without being aware of it, so please refrain from the following points.
- Please refrain from eating meals with many people over an extended period of time (including gatherings with meals at private homes.)
- Please refrain from unnecessary traveling and staying in groups.
As the pandemic has persisted, some people suffer from problems such as physical and mental illness, concerns about school and living expenses. In addition to the Student Affairs Section of your faculty, Kyushu U also has contact points for each type of consultation, so please do not hesitate to contact them. As the end of the school year approaches, it is a time when it is easy to get tired and fall ill. Please be aware of your physical condition as well as those of others around you, so that everyone can lead a safe and secure university life.
