Re: Response to Kyoto Prefecture’s Lifting of State of Emergency Measures
As of February 28, Kyoto Prefecture was excluded from the areas subject to the government’s declaration of a state of emergency regarding the novel coronavirus infection, and the state of emergency measures in Kyoto Prefecture have been lifted. However, Kyoto Prefecture has decided to implement measures transitioning to a new stage to prevent the resurgence of the infection, and continues to request that people refrain from going out unnecessarily, promote telework, and that universities and other institutions take measures to prevent infection.
In light of the above, Kyoto Institute of Technology has instructed its students, faculty and staff
to refrain from non-essential outings and traveling to the areas under state of emergency, to actively work from home, to refrain from social gathering and graduation trips, and to thoroughly implement measures to prevent infection during extracurricular activities during the state of emergency period, in accordance with Kyoto Prefecture’s request.
Entrance examinations, the degree awarding ceremony and the entrance ceremony will be held. For details, please refer to separate related notice.
We ask for your continued cooperation in following the “Kyoto Institute of Technology Manual on Limiting Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Transmission” and consistently implementing basic infection control measures. Avoid the “3Cs” (crowded places, close contact settings and closed spaces), maintain social distancing from others, wear a mask and wash and disinfect your hands. Also, actively practice the “new lifestyle” (limiting unnecessary contact with people, etc.) in order to protect your health and prevent others from becoming infected.
Note:March 22 Restrictions on non-essential outings and traveling to the areas under state of emergency were deleted.
