Dear students, faculty and staff,
The following is a message from President Kiyotaka Morisako, the director of the Headquarters for New Coronavirus Infectious Disease Control regarding:
The New Kyoto Prefecture Directive on Preventing the Resurgence of Novel Coronavirus Infections.
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 take thorough infection prevention measures.
Be aware of the basic rules of Kyoto Prefecture and act prudently.
In addition, at KIT, we ask that you take the measures outlined below.
Be sure to refer to the KIT website (https://www.kit.ac.jp/covid-19_summary/) for a summary of our current recommendations.
In addition to the above, continue to follow the recommendations of the “Manual for Prevention of the Spread of Novel Coronavirus Infections at Kyoto Institute of Technology.”
We ask that you remain aware that the risk of infection is particularly high when eating and drinking in the company of others. Be sure to follow the following “Kyoto Manners” recommendations when eating and drinking.
We 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.
