(2021.1.15) [To students] Attending classes related to prevention of the spread of COVID-19

Makoto MIYATANI
Executive Vice President (Education), Hiroshima University

 
Currently, COVID-19 is spreading in Japan, and the government issued the "State of Emergency for COVID-19" on Thursday January 7th. Hiroshima Prefecture has also announced a policy to refrain from traffic to and from areas subject to the state of emergency as much as possible. 
Also, in Hiroshima Prefecture, especially in Hiroshima City, the situation is still unpredictable. In Hiroshima Prefecture, the "Second Intensive Measures for COVID-19" will be implemented from Monday January 18th to Sunday February 7th.

At Hiroshima University, with the cooperation of every one, we have been able to hold classes without stopping so far, and we will soon reach the final exam period of the 4th term. However, in the unlikely event that a cluster occurs on campus in the future, it could have a greater impact on your student life, including not only classes and final exams but also enter the campus.
In order to avoid such a situation, please take the following actions when taking future classes. In addition, especially regarding domestic movement, please make a careful decision based on the requests of each prefecture.

We hope that all students will be able to attend classes and final exams in perfect condition while paying close attention to their health.

  • Even if you take online classes, you may enter the campus for research purposes or meals, but please take basic infection prevention measures by yourself.

After staying at home for 5 days, if you take the PCR test at your own expense and the result is negative, you can cancel the staying at home.

  • As a centralized measure in Hiroshima Prefecture, “reduction of outing opportunities” is required, and in particular, residents of Hiroshima City are required to further reduce “going out after 20:00”. It does not limit activities necessary for commuting to school or daily life, so please carefully consider the necessity and act appropriately.
  • If you have any concerns about your mental or physical condition, please consult the Health Service Center.
