  2. Daily health care and basic actions to prevent the infection

     Following the global outbreak of coronavirus epidemic, the Government of Japan declared the State of Emergency and has been working to end the epidemic as early as possible. Thus, we request all students and faculty members of YNU to behave in an appropriate manner at this crucial time as persons who promote practical academic research in order to be trusted by society.

    • (1) We strongly encourage all students and faculty members to take actions to minimize the risk of being infected. More importantly, young people in particular must be aware that they have a great risk of getting an asymptomatic infection and transmitting the virus to others as spreaders.

    • (2) Moving beyond the area in which you live, such as returning home or traveling (including overseas), during this period may increase your risk of being infected and may spread the disease wherever you visit both in Japan and abroad. In addition, if you are infected while traveling beyond your residential area makes it difficult to identify the source of infection. Thus, it is recommended to carefully determine the urgency of traveling beyond your residential area.

    • (3) Also, avoid as much as possible going to places or events, regardless of size, where people communicate with each other at close distances in poorly ventilated spaces.

    • (4) You are advised to take adequate sleep and nutrition, wear a mask, and wash hands with soap frequently, as is the case with avoiding influenza. Also, please contact the Center for Health Service Science if you feel uneasy about your health.

    • (5) Wearing masks under hot and humid weather might bring you a higher risk of heatstroke. If you are staying outdoor and are able to keep distance with other people, you may take off masks.

    • (6) Please refer to the following website when determining whether or not you need to consult with the Returnee and Contact Counseling Centers.
