To Kyushu University Students, Faculty & Staff:
The priority measures to prevent the spread of the disease to Fukuoka Prefecture have been lifted. However, the "Fukuoka Corona Alert" remains in effect, and many restrictions on activities will remain in place until April 7 as a "Period for Preventing the Re-Spread of Infection." Therefore, we will maintain the University's current restriction level of "Level 2: Restrictions (Low)" while reviewing some of the restrictions on activities.
- Eating and Drinking Together
⇒Refrain from eating and drinking in groups on streets or in parks where infection prevention measures are not thoroughly implemented, such as banquets associated with cherry blossom viewing, because the risk of infection is high.
⇒When using eating and drinking establishments, choose the ones practicing thorough infection prevention measures, including those with Fukuoka Prefecture’s Infection Prevention Certificate [COVID-19 Safe Certified Shop]).
⇒Avoid using restaurants for long periods of time, no more than two hours. Generally, no more than four people can be seated at the same table in a restaurant. If you feel even the slightest bit unwell, please do not participate in eating or drinking, considering the impact on the participants, and consider seeking a doctor. （This includes gatherings with meals at private homes, etc.）
- ravel & Going Out
⇒Non-essential and non-urgent travel to and from the priority areas for the priority measures to prevent the spread of the disease should be avoided as much as possible. For cross-border travel to and from other areas, basic infection prevention measures, including avoidance of the "3Cs," should be thoroughly implemented.
⇒If it is still necessary to travel, please undergo PCR or other tests to confirm that you are negative. Local governments are offering free COVID-19 PCR tests for asymptomatic people who are concerned about infection.
*Regarding the latest Kyushu U Guidance Level
To be announced on the Kyushu U website when it is ready.
Kyushu University still reports about 7-8 positive cases daily. There are also reports of 2,000 to 3,000 positive cases per day in Fukuoka Prefecture.
In addition, there is concern about the re-spread of infection from this month through next month, when the nationwide movement of people will increase.
In addition to thorough daily infection control measures, a third dose of COVID-19 vaccine is very effective means of preventing infection and serious illness.
We ask all students, faculty, and staff to continue to take thorough measures to prevent infection, and those who have not yet received their third vaccination to consider taking advantage of the University's workplace vaccination program, which will begin on the 10th of this week.
