(2020.7.31) Alert to prevent spread of COVID-19

As you all know, beginning in July, the number of infected people has rapidly increased not only in metropolitan areas such as Tokyo, but also in Hiroshima Prefecture, and there is a danger that future university activities will be at risk.
Based on Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (Thorough efforts to prevent cluster outbreaks at restaurants, etc.) and Hiroshima Prefecture ("Hiroshima's coping policy to prevent the spread of COVID-19", "Declaration of strengthening caution against spread of infection-to prevent the second wave"), please take the following actions.
In addition, in the future, if a new policy is announced by the national government and Hiroshima Prefecture, please note that this correspondence may be changed.

(1) Thoroughly avoid " Three Cs" (closed space with poor ventilation, dense place where many people gather, close scene where conversations and utterances occur at short distances), and do not spread the infection by actions that increase the risk of spreading the infection. In particular, be sure to wear a mask, wash your hands, disinfect, and thoroughly ventilate.

(2) Continue to carry out the "A health status confirmation questionnaire/Movements Record Sheets" posted in My Momiji as June 1.

(3) If you move to 5 prefectures of Hokkaido, Saitama, Chiba, Tokyo or Kanagawa by August 31, please report the period and area of your stay to your tutor or academic supervisor promptly after returning to Hiroshima Prefecture, considering the circumstances so far.
※Even if you have moved from the 5 prefectures by August 31, please report the period and area you were staying to your tutor or academic supervisor as soon as you arrive in Hiroshima.

(4) Until August 31, check the infection status and information provided by the prefectures to which you are moving, and refrain from moving to or from the high-risk areas.

(5) Please install and use the COVID-19 contact confirmation application (COCOA) of the country.

(6) Regarding the extracurricular activities of students, observe the guidelines for "preventing COVID-19 associated with resumption of extracurricular activities" (July 31, 2020), which clearly bans off-campus expeditions, training camps, and parties.

(7) Regarding meals, please be careful to prevent infections by avoiding a large number of people and having conversations during meals.

(8) When conducting off-campus practice, observe the health management and infection prevention measures set by the facility from the viewpoint of preventing infection at the facility.
