学部長 Dr. Alan Brenderからの新型コロナウィルスに関するメッセージ(日本語訳は英語のメッセージの下をご覧ください)


Dear LUJ students, faculty, and staff, 

As you know, the coronavirus (COVID-19) is continuing to spread worldwide. Tokyo has had several clusters of cases, but so far no general outbreak. Still, we need to take precautions. We will use the LUJ BLOG as the primary source of updates, and will provide such updates at least once a week. Please read the update below as well as the report on actions that LUJ is taking to combat the spread of the virus. 



LUJ has decided to postpone the following events until further notice:

- International Food Festival

- Movie Nights

- Lecture Series

- End of term ceremonies (EAP)

- Any other event, including student club activities, expecting 25 or more participants



We strongly encourage every member of the LUJ community to continue taking measures to reduce the risk of contracting or spreading the virus when on campus, including: 

- Wearing a mask whenever possible.

- Regularly wshing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or more, or use an alcohol-based sanitizer with 60% alcohol or higher. At this time, we have placed bottles of disinfectant throughout the campus. Please use the disinfectant to clean your hands. 

- Regularly clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that could be contaminated with germs (such as your phone).

- Cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough. 

- Try to avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.



If you develop flu-like symptoms similar to the coronavirus, please take the following action. 

- Students should report their illness immediately to the Student Affairs office at 03-3225-0427 or by email at
