1. Daily health management

(1) Measure your temperature and check how you feel every morning and evening. Keep a record of what you did during the day (when, where, with whom, what you did).
Health check sheet: https://hschome-gw.hsc.chiba-u.jp/pdf/Coronavirus2020_checklistEng.pdf

(2) If you have any of the following symptoms: cold symptoms or other health problems, such as fever; if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19; if you have close contacts with the patients with COVID-19; if you have undergone or will undergo a PCR test, and if you have arrived in Japan from overseas, Contact Chiba University’s Safety and Health Organization by email, stay at home, and keep a close watch on your state of health.
Details about how to contact them: https://hschome-gw.hsc.chiba-u.ac.jp/home_e.html

(3) Wear a mask in crowded places, indoors, and when you are in a restaurant but not eating.

(4) Make sure to wash your hands with soap when you arrive at college, when you return home, after using the toilet, and before meals.

(5) Be sure to maintain a safe distance from other people (about 1 m when wearing a mask).

(6) The risk of passing on the virus is higher while sharing meals together (especially if alcohol is involved and it is late at night). Take sufficient measures to reduce this risk.

(7) Check the student portal for any suspensions of attendance (public leaves). (No medical certificate is required.)

(8) Advance preparations in case you need to self-isolate or recuperate at home
1) Make sure you have a thermometer, hand soap, food for several days (e.g., preserved foods such as retort pouches), drinks (e.g., oral rehydration solutions, jelly drinks), and changes of clothes.
2) Decide whom to ask for support if you have to self-isolate or recuperate at home.
3) Tell your family, friends, and advisers that you are self-isolating or recovering at home.

2. Guidelines for telephone consulting with the Support Center for Homecomers and Close Contacts or a home doctor.

  • - Contact the Support Center immediately if you have one of the following severe symptoms: difficulty breathing (dyspnea), extreme tiredness (malaise), or high fever
  • - Contact the Support Center immediately if you are a person in the ‘at risk’ category and have relatively mild previous symptoms, such as fever or cough.

* Older people; those who are vulnerable, such as those with diabetes, cardiac problems, respiratory diseases (COPD, etc.); those who are undergoing kidney dialysis; those who use immunosuppressive agents or anticancer agents, and so on; expectant mothers; children; those to whom the conditions mentioned above do not apply but have had relatively mild previous symptoms, such as persistent fever or cough. (Make sure to consult the Support Center immediately if these symptoms continue for more than four days, including when you are taking antipyretics.)
