A message from President Kiyotaka Morisako, Director of the New Coronavirus Infectious Disease Control Headquarters
Re: Preventing the Resurgence of Novel Coronavirus Infections in Kyoto Prefecture
The Kyoto Prefectural Government’s priority measures regarding novel coronavirus infection ended on March 21. However, as novel coronavirus infection is not yet under control, Kyoto Prefecture has established “Prevention of Further Infection” measures and continues to request that universities and other institutions observe them. In response, KIT is instructing its students, faculty, and staff to consistently observe infection prevention measures, when eating and drinking with others, and to actively utilize telework.
We will continue to ask students, faculty and staff to follow the Kyoto Institute of Technology Manual on Limiting Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Transmission and consistently implement 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.) to protect your health and prevent others from becoming infected.
