Infection with the Novel Coronavirus is spreading, chiefly in China. As reported in various news media, cases of infection have surfaced in several countries and regions, and authorities are taking emergency measures in response. We at Doshisha University have been urging caution by means such as the practice of steps to prevent infection and confirmation of the latest related information on our website. With top priority on safety, however, we have decided to take the action noted below in regard to China in particular, which has the most confirmed cases of infection, in accordance with a notice from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology dated January 29.
In addition, we ask you to stay apprised of the latest related information on the spread of the virus going forward, and to exercise prudence in your judgment and actions.

Action

1.
We strongly advise persons who are planning to travel to or via areas for which the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has aised the infectious disease risk level to Level 3 (as of January 31, all of Hubei Province, China, was so designated) to refrain from such travel.

2.
If you are returning or coming to Japan from China, or must unavoidably stay in China for a time, please contact the undergraduate faculty or graduate school in which you are enrolled, or the International Center, in advance.

2)
We ask persons who do not have a fever (temperature of 37.5 degrees centigrade or higher) or respiratory condition at the time of returning or coming to Japan from China to refrain from going outside as far as possible for purposes that are unnecessary or not urgent, and to wear a face mask when going outside and take their temperature in the morning and evening, for a period of 14 days after returning or coming to Japan from China.

We ask persons who resided in the city of Wuhan or had extensive contact with people who resided there to remain at home for a period of 14 days after returning or coming to Japan, in order to monitor their condition for this period.
