[Message from the President of Kyushu University]

“As a way to arrest the spread of the novel coronavirus, the Japanese Government
declared state of emergency today (April 7) covering seven areas, including Fukuoka Prefecture”.
“Following this event, we have decided to ask our faculty and staff to work from home until further notice”.

“For the time being, we have no plans to close the university campus. But at the same time, we would like to reduce the number of students coming to the campus to an absolute minimum. In line with this, we have changed the event calendar and the ways in which we offer various activities for the first few months of the academic year 2020. All extracurricular activities have also been suspended for the timing. Despite many setbacks that we all are forced to
endure, I sincerely hope that you, the students, will make most of the online learning opportunities that the university makes available for you. Given that Fukuoka is now in state of emergency, I also urge you to act prudently to protect yourselves and your loved ones”.
“We continue to post the latest information and announcements on the Kyushu University website as necessary, so please check our website regularly”.


[The Governor of Fukuoka Prefecture has announced an important message to the public]

Starting this weekend, the Governor is strongly encouraging the public to refrain from non-essential/-urgent outing in response to the persistent spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
