Dear Students, Faculty and Staff

As was announced via email on Monday, November 2, one of our EAP students unfortunately has been infected with the COVID-19 virus and has been hospitalized. Based on calculations from a medical representative from the COVID Health Center (Hokenjo), LUJ was informed that the actual date of infection most likely took place on October 23, 2020, prior to the on-campus EAP workshop the student had attended on October 27, 2020. One other student, who is considered a “close contact”, has already taken a PCR test, was confirmed negative for the virus, and is following instructions from the health office to self-quarantine at home for the appropriate time. We are happy to report both students have confirmed they are feeling well and continue following the professional advice and guidelines from the health office.

Also announced earlier to by email to students, faculty, and staff, the university decided to hold all classes this week online. The voluntary on-campus academic courses, as well as EAP workshops, will resume the week of November 9th, provided no new problems occur. 

LUJ has already taken measures to disinfect the campus areas per the guidelines and instructions of the Hokenjo. We will continue following all the recommended campus sanitation and safety protocols, and urge the LUJ community to also continue strictly following the health guidelines and stay safe. 

 

11月2日(月)のメールでお知らせしたとおり、EAP生の1名が新型コロナウイルスに感染し入院しました。保健所の報告によれば、感染はこの学生が出席した対面授業のEAPワークショップ(10月27日)より前である10月23日頃と思われます。他の学生1名が濃厚接触者と認められPCR検査を受けましたが、陰性と診断され、保健所の指示に従って現在、一定期間自宅で自己隔離中です。両学生とも体調は良好で、保健所の専門家による指示とガイドラインに従っております。

また、先にお知らせしたとおり、今週の全ての授業をオンラインで実施することに決定しています。特に新たな問題が生じない限り、自主参加のアカデミッククラス、EAPワークショップのいずれも、119日から始まる週に再開する予定です。

 LUJはすでに保健所のガイドラインと指示に基づき、キャンパス内の消毒を行っています。今後も大学はキャンパス内の衛生と安全に関して推奨されるあらゆるプロトコールを遵守するとともに、LUJコミュニティが健康に関するガイドラインを引き続き厳守して、安全に過ごすようお願いします。
