Measures against the Infection Spread of the Novel Coronavirus (the Seventh Report)

Dear YNU Students and Faculty Members

February 14, 2020
Masaki Takagi
Executive Director (General Affairs)
Kenji Ohshige
Director, Center for Health Service Science


 
In accordance with the notice from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology on February 13, 2020, we have partially revised the measures to be taken on Item ⑤ below (Zhejiang Province has been added to Item ⑤ from the Sixth Report). In the meantime, we would like to ask your cooperation in taking these measures required as follows.
Please note that these measures are subject to change depending on future development of the situation concerning the novel coronavirus. Basically, we will update future changes in these measures through YNU website so as to enable you to confirm possible changes.
Also, we have been conducting a questionnaire on this matter for all students and faculty members through the safety confirmation system. Please be sure to answer the questionnaire.

① On traveling China, please confirm the information and instructions published by the Japanese and Chinese governments and fully inspect the local situations. According to the information on China as of February 14, 2020 from the overseas safety website of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, all area of Hubei Province and Wenzhou City of Zhejiang Province in China is at Risk Level 3 (which means "you are urged to avoid all travel to the countries and regions regardless of any purposes"), and other regions are at Risk Level 2 (which means "you are advised to avoid non-essential travel to the countries and regions").

② Those who have traveled to infected areas after January 20 and those who unavoidably need to travel to the country or region at Risk Level 2 (including the countries and regions that had previously been designated at Risk Level 1 as measures to cope with the infection spread of the novel coronavirus) in the future are requested to submit an overseas travel notification to your affiliated department office (or to the office of your college or graduate school for undergraduate and graduate students) in advance and a return report when you come back to Japan.

○ You can download the form of the overseas travel notification (for students) from the following URL:

③ Even if you are traveling to countries or regions where infection has not been reported by transiting at airports in China, you are also requested to submit the notification to the university (currently, transit at airports in Hubei Province is not available).

④ Upon the designation of the novel coronavirus infection as the designated infectious disease, those students or faculty members who are diagnosed or suspected to have the infection as a result of medical examinations will be the first-class infected persons stipulated in the School Health and Safety Law after February 1, 2020, and will be prohibited to attend classes (or come to work) until they are cured of the infection.

⑤After returning to Japan from Mainland China (including Hong Kong and Macau), you are advised to measure your body temperature every day for 2 weeks and follow the instructions A and B listed below (If you do not have a thermometer, please ask the Center for Health Service Science).
A. For those who have traveled to or stayed in Hubei Province or/and Zhejiang Province, or have contacted with residents of Hubei Province or/and Zhejiang Province
1) If you have fever above 37.5 degrees and any respiratory symptom together within two weeks after returning, please contact the Center for Health Service Science (045-339-3153, 8:30 to 17:00 on weekdays) and call the “Returnee and Contactee Consulting Center” immediately and consult for further instructions. When you are instructed to go to a medical institution, you are also advised to; avoid contact with other persons, wear a mask, etc., and immediately present to a medical institution after giving advance notice of your visiting there. After consulting a medical institution, please inform the result of the diagnosis to the Center for Health Service Science.
2) Even if the above 1) does not apply with you, you are requested to refrain from going out of your house for two weeks after returning. Please consult with your undergraduate or graduate school about your absence from classes and examinations during your stay-at-home period. If a fever above 37.5 degrees and any respiratory symptom begins during this period, please follow the direction 1) above.
B. For those who have traveled to or stayed in China other than Hubei Province or/and Zhejiang Province,and have not contacted with residents of Hubei Province or/and Zhejiang Province.
1) If you have fever above 37.5 degrees and any respiratory symptom together within two weeks after returning, you are advised to; avoid contact with other persons, wear a mask, etc., and present to a medical institution immediately.
2) If you do not have fever above 37.5 degrees or any respiratory symptom at the time of returning, you are still advised to take health observance by measuring your body temperature for 2 weeks. If a fever above 37.5 degrees and any respiratory symptom begins during this period, please follow the direction 1) above.


⑥ The above measures are based on the information published by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology through their website for the novel coronavirus countermeasures, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the overseas safety, and other related websites. Please note that these measures are subject to change depending on the future increase or decrease in risk levels.

⑦ Even though you have never traveled to endemic areas, you are advised to stay in good shape by taking preventive measures, such as taking an adequate sleep and nutrition, wearing a mask, and washing hands with soap, as is the case with the flu. Also, please contact with the Center for Health Service Science if you feel uneasy about your health.
