(2022.1.11) [To students] Classes to be conducted in the future

Executive Vice President (Education), Hiroshima University

Following the application of the "Priority Measures to Prevent the Spread of Infectious Diseases" to Hiroshima Prefecture, HU has raised its activity restrictions index from "Level 1 (Be careful, Some activity restrictions)" to "Level 1.5 (Be careful, Certain restrictions)" from January 9 (Sun.).

At present, we have decided to maintain our existing policy (since October last year), so classes are conducted face-to-face in principle, with thorough infection prevention measures in place. At the same time, classes will be effectively combined with online classes depending on the characteristics and content of each subject.

However, depending on the future infection situation and the policies of the government and Hiroshima Prefecture, we may be forced to switch to online classes. In order to stop the spread of the infection, for everyone, please take basic measures to prevent infection once more, not only in the classroom but also in your daily life.

* If there are any changes in the above plan, we will notify you promptly on our website and "MOMIJI".

If you are unable to attend a face-to-face class

If you are unable to attend a face-to-face class due to poor physical condition, difficulty in moving, anxiety about infection, please contact the instructor in charge of the class in advance by e-mail or other means. The instructor will not count you as absent, and will take measures so that you will not be disadvantaged in your course work.

If you have any of the following symptoms: a fever (37.5 degrees or higher, or 1 degree higher than normal), malaise, cough, suffocation, sore throat, headache, or abnormal sense of taste/smell, immediately consult with your doctor or other medical institution or consultation center (health center). In addition, if you or someone living with you is ill, please check the Health Service Center's website for information on how to handle the situation and take appropriate action.

For off-campus practical training (including hands-on learning, etc.), in addition to complying with infection prevention measures at the training site, please actively take the PCR test, and thoroughly take infection prevention measures during the two weeks prior to the training and during the training period.

* PCR test conducted free of charge by Hiroshima Prefecture (Hiroshima Prefecture website)
