Re: Thorough prevention of the resurgence of infections in light of priority prevention measures
The Governor of Kyoto Prefecture has requested the government to announce Kyoto Prefecture as an area where “priority measures to prevent the spread of infections” should be implemented with regard to COVID-19.
In line with this request, universities have been asked to take thorough measures to prevent the resurgence of the infection.
In light of the above, in accordance with Kyoto Prefecture’s request, Kyoto Institute of Technology has instructed its students, faculty and staff to refrain from non-essential outings and from using facilities with a high risk of infection, to actively work from home, to refrain from events involving eating or drinking, to refrain from visiting eating and drinking establishments after the requested shortened operating hours, to thoroughly implement measures to prevent infection during extracurricular activities, and to take measures to prevent infection during eating or drinking (“Kyoto Manners”).
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.
