Response to Kyoto Prefecture’s Priority Prevention Measures
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Kyoto Prefectural Government has requested that universities continue to implement measures to control the spread of the infection, following the shift to “Priority Prevention Measures” from June 21.
Accordingly, Kyoto Institute of Technology will continue to promote the combined use of HyFlex classes and online classes, and has instructed its students, faculty and staff to refrain from non-essential outings and from outdoor (streets, parks, etc.) drinking in groups, to refrain from organizing face-to-face events, 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.
