TUAT Measures in Response to COVID-19

 The number of positive COVID-19 cases continues to be high in Japan. Therefore, we, at TUAT, ask all students to cooperate in preventing the infection spread by raising awareness on “protecting yourself from infection and preventing infection transmission to others”, in order to create an environment where lectures/research can be conducted smoothly. There are reports of suspected cases of COVID-19 in which infection may have spread due to students gathering to eat/drink, going to a karaoke bar, or going on a trip together, etc., so please behave according to the following precautions for the time being.

  • In general, lectures are conducted face to face after thorough infection prevention measures are taken. However, please follow the policies of the Faculty/Graduate School you belong to.
  • As we will be frequently posting up-to-date information on how the lectures or university events, etc. will be held at TUAT, please check the Google Classroom, Web Bulletin Board for students and TUAT website, etc.
  • Laboratory activities can be carried out after thorough infection prevention measures are taken. However, please ensure to follow the policies of the Faculty/Graduate School you belong to.
  • If there are students who wish to avoid commuting to university, etc. due to concerns on infection transmission, please contact the education/student life committee or your supervisor/advising professor immediately.
  • At each campus, infection prevention measures are taken and we are working to create a safe environment for study and research, where the students and researchers can pursue their study and research without much concern about the infection transmission, etc. Please cooperate in wearing non-woven masks, cleaning your hands and disinfecting your desks with alcohol, etc.
  • Please take good care of your health. If you feel unwell even if slightly, please refrain from attending university or going outside the house/residence, and consult a doctor or take a PCR/antigen test.
  • If you receive a notification from “COCOA” (COVID-19 Contact-Confirming Application), contact a consultation center near you by following the instructions displayed on the app screen and selecting the region you are in.
  • We recommend getting vaccinated for COVID-19 proactively.
  • If you have engaged in behaviors or activities that may lead to infection (gathering to eat or drink with a number of people, etc.), please avoid commuting to university for 5 days and keep a record of the people you were in contact with, etc.
  • About extra-curricular activities, please refer to “5月以降の課外活動について” (Extra-curricular activities from May) dated May 23, 2022.
  • Keep social distancing and keep verbal communication to a minimum in various situations regardless of whether you are on campus or off campus.
  • Avoid events such as social gatherings (welcome parties, etc.) which can lead to infection spread.
  • Avoid eating or drinking with a large number of people (for example, ones with the number of participants exceeding 4) regardless of whether the participants belong to TUAT or not; whether the venue is in a restaurant or in someone’s private house/residence, etc.
  • Please take great care and attention not to contract the virus from off-campus activities (including part-time jobs and volunteer activities).
  • When going outside, avoid crowded places and busy times.
  • When going on a domestic business trip inside Japan, give adequate thought to the situations of both the departure point and destination before proceeding with the trip.
  • About overseas trips for outbound study abroad programs based on agreements (such as inter-university cooperation agreements) or students’ overseas business trips, etc., please consult the Student Support Office or a related office in the Faculty or Graduate School you belong to, well in advance of planning the trip.
  • If you are confirmed with COVID-19, taken a PCR test, or identified as a Close Contact to a COVID-19 positive individual, immediately report it to TUAT.
  • Please act according to the guidelines/information provided by the national/local governments.
  • We will make a new announcement if there is any change to the current status, such as the government re-declares the state of emergency.
  • If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Student Support Office, etc. of the Faculty or Graduate School you belong to.
