To all Keio students:
Keio University Student Affairs Center
While we believe that all Keio students are doing their utmost to prevent the spread of infections with COVID-19, the number of infections continues to rise throughout Japan. Moreover, it has been indicated both that the breakdown of new infections reveals that many of these are in younger age tiers, and that infections and clusters frequently originate from places where people dine in group settings.
Dining in groups refers to eating and drinking accompanied by conversation and involving a number of participants. This kind of group dining is known to carry an extremely high risk of infection through droplets, as it involves people in close contact who remove their masks and engage in conversation.
At the Student Affairs Center, we have consistently urged Keio students to refrain from group dining involving multiple participants outside their family and roommates along with the adoption of basic precautions to prevent the spread of infection including wearing masks, hand hygiene, and gargling.
However, in view of the ongoing spread of infections, we once more strongly insist that you strictly refrain from dining in groups.
Each and every Keio student is requested to maintain strict vigilance around "getting infected" and "infecting others," and that they be highly mindful of their role as a Keio student and the responsibility their actions entail in maximizing the prevention of infections and the spread of the disease.
