Students

  1. Although there are no restrictions against coming to campus, students are requested to continue to look after their health and prevent the spread of infections to others. Students should follow the infection prevention measures described below:
  • Avoid the “Three Cs” with increased infection risks within and outside campus (The “Three Cs” refer to Closed spaces, Crowded places, and Close-contact settings).
  • Always wear a mask within campus and when going outside to prevent spreading infections to others.
  • Using the “Health Check and Activity Record Sheet”, check your temperature/health condition and record your activities (visited locations and contacts) every day (If you become infected, you will be asked to submit the previous 2 weeks of records).
  1. In principle, classes in Term 2 will be conducted through online videoconferencing with Zoom. Classes that require face-to-face interactions (lectures, seminars, and laboratory subjects) will be conducted with social distancing. Masks and temperature checks are required for face-to-face classes. Students should refrain from attending classes if they have a fever of 37.5°C or higher, or if they have been sick or participated in high-risk activities in the past 2 weeks.
  2. Masks and temperature checks are also required for laboratory activities. When using equipment for experiments, users must wash their hands and/or use hand sanitizers at the start/during breaks/end of the experiments to prevent contact infections. Students should refrain from laboratory activities if they have been sick or participated in high-risk activities in the past 2 weeks.
  3. Overseas travel is, in principle, forbidden (Permission from the President of NUT is required). There are no restrictions to traveling within Japan (including travel to other prefectures), but students should travel with careful consideration to the prevention of infections. Students who have come from areas with high infection rates should carefully monitor their health condition for approximately 2 weeks after arriving.
  4. For job search activities that require travel within Japan, students should refer to the guideline in Item 4 above.
  5. With regard to going out, students should avoid the “Three Cs” and refrain from dangerous activities that may spread infections.
  6. Students should be especially careful to avoid the “Three Cs” and prevent the spread of infections in club activities. With consideration to the guidelines specified by the relevant organization for each sport/game, each club should first submit an activity plan (including infection prevention measures) to the Division of Student Affairs and receive authorization before beginning their activities. In addition, each club should first submit an activity plan (including infection prevention measures) to the Division of Student Affairs and receive authorization before conducting any training camps or off-campus activities.
  7. If students need part-time jobs, they should choose jobs that have adequate infection prevention measures. Students are strongly requested to avoid dangerous part-time jobs with a high risk of infections with regard to the “Three Cs”.
  8. Students should stay at home and refrain from any activities if they are sick. If you suspect that you are infected with COVID-19, contact the Returnees & Potential Contacts Consultation Center (Public Health Center), seek medical care at a hospital/clinic, and inform the university. Stay at home for an additional 2 days after recovery.
  9. In addition, students should follow the precautions and requests issued by the national government and Niigata prefectural government (or the local governments in any other prefecture that you visit).
