YNU's Response to the Impact of COVID-19 in the Selection of Students Newly Enrolled in AY 2022


Yokohama National University (YNU) has adopted the following policy on the selection of new entrants in response to the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Please note that this policy may be subject to change according to the situation of COVID-19 pandemic. For applications for entrance examinations, please check the latest information through the Application Guidelines for colleges/graduate schools or the University website.

【Infection prevention and health management】
Please make sure to pay attention to your health and take thorough measures to prevent infection by avoiding “3Cs” (crowded places, close-contact setting, and closed spaces), keeping a physical distance with others, wearing a face mask, and practicing good hand hygiene including washing hands. Please check your temperature in the morning, etc. about 7 days before the examination date and check for any changes in your physical condition. If you have symptoms such as fever or cough, please visit a medical institution.

【Wearing a mask】
On the day of the examination, please make sure that whether you have symptoms or not, you wear a face mask at all times, except while eating during lunch. For checking the photo identification of examinees, please follow the instructions given by examination proctors. If you do not have a mask, if your mask gets dirty or damaged, or if you are unable to wear a mask for some reason, please contact a staff member. All staff, including examination proctors, will wear masks.

【Responses to COVID-19 on the exam day】
・Disinfect your hands with a quick-drying alcohol-based hand sanitizer at the entrance of the examination venue.
・We may check your temperature at the entrance of the examination venue. If your temperature is higher than the set point, please follow the instructions of the staff.
・The windows will be opened at times to provide ventilation in the examination room. In the examinations held in the summer, please pay attention to prevent heatstroke by hydrating frequently, and in the examinations held in the winter, please give some consideration to your clothes, such as warm clothes.
・You should have a lunch at your desk in the examination room. Please refrain from contacting and talking to other persons during break time and lunch time as well as when entering and leaving the examination room.

【Responses to those feeling unwell】
