If you tested positive for COVID-19

Whether or not to refrain from going out is a personal decision. Please refer to the following information.
・ Period during which it is recommended to refrain from going out
     Since the risk of infecting others is particularly high during the first 5 days after the onset of symptoms, refrain from going out for 5 days, counting the day of onset as day 0. Even if you have no choice but to go out, make sure that you do not have any symptoms and wear a mask. In addition, if symptoms persist on the 5th day, it is recommended that you refrain from going out until about 24 hours have passed from when the symptoms have eased. If the symptoms are severe, consult a doctor.

・ Consideration for those around you
      It is possible for the virus to be discharged until 10 days have passed, so please take care not to spread it to those around you, such as by wearing a non-woven mask and refraining from contact with high-risk people such as the elderly.
      If a family member or a person cohabiting becomes infected with the coronavirus, assuming that the date of onset of the coronavirus is day 0, please pay attention to your physical condition especially for 5 days.

*If a group of students, faculty or staff are affected at the same time and within the same activity unit, which is the conventional guidelines of an outbreak (5 or more affected people in the same activity unit at the same time), and an incident occurs that is considered to have a significant impact on the education, research or administrative activities, please contact the contact point of your department with the number of people, the date, time, place, background, and the contact information of the representative.
