To all Keio students:
Keio University Student Affairs Center
As the spread of infections by COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) in Japan continues unabated, we strongly urge all Keio students to do their utmost to prevent infection by COVID-19 and to limit the spread of the disease. As has already been announced, we are requesting for students to postpone or refrain from all nonessential or nonurgent meetings, as well as the enforcement of measures to prevent infection by COVID-19 and to limit its spread; however, there are reports that some Keio students are engaging in activities with little consideration for these measures. Please be deeply aware of how to "avoid infection" and "infecting others," and take great responsibility as individual students of Keio University to implement the necessary precautions.
As far as possible, please avoid going outside when it is nonurgent or unnecessary. Take care of your health by eating a balanced diet and getting enough sleep, and enforce a strict regimen of hand hygiene (washing hands, using a disinfectant, etc.). If you have any symptoms including a cough, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, or fever, please ensure that you wear a mask. If you have cold-like symptoms accompanying a fever of 37.5 degrees Celsius or higher, please stay at home and report this to the Keio University Health Center. Please avoid enclosed spaces with poor ventilation, large concentrations of people, or speaking and conversing at close distance (reachable distance if you mutually stretch out your hands), as these are considered high risk for the outbreak of infections (cluster outbreaks).
In principle, please postpone or refrain from all student club activities, and endeavor to reduce the chance of close contact between club members. In addition, please refer to "Hosting of Events and Other Functions Involving Keio Students (Measures Against COVID-19 [Coronavirus Disease])" regarding whether or not to go ahead with events, meetings (including meals and drinking events), etc.
Please avoid meetings on or in the vicinity of university campuses even when you have to visit a campus for unavoidable reasons. Obstructing commuters such as standing or meeting with people inside station buildings or near ticket gates is prohibited, as in addition to being nuisance behavior, such actions can become a source of infection.
Please avoid going outside when not urgent or unnecessary, and continue to stringently observe your health by taking your temperature twice daily for a period of 14 days from the day you return to or enter Japan from overseas (all countries and regions). You will be directed to stay confined to a location specified by the quarantine station chief (home, etc.) for 14 days if you return to or enter Japan from designated countries and regions. Furthermore, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs raised the infection danger level for all countries and regions to level 2 on March 25. Please stop all nonessential or nonurgent travel overseas. Please check the websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.
Detailed information concerning COVID-19 is posted on the Keio student website (https://www.students.keio.ac.jp/en/com/class/schedule/covid-19.html). Please try to prevent the spread of infection after you have each confirmed this information.
