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.
