Report on Response to Coronavirus (Third report)


TIJ Tokyo Institute of Japanese would like to extend all our sympathy with all those who have been in uneasy and unstable conditions, the bereaved families of the deceased and those who have infected with coronavirus.

In response to the spread of domestic infections in Japan and to avoid going to school during the rush hour, we have decided to change the morning class hours for a while from February 19.

<Before the change>

From 9:00 to 12:20(Break: 10:30 to 10:50)

<After the change>

From 9:30 to 12:45(Break: 11:00 to 11:15)


The following measures are continuously being taken to prevent the infections so that students can live securely and safely.


 ①Grasp physical conditions of the students, teachers and staff every day.

   If the fever is more than 37 degrees, coming to school is prohibited. We provide student support based on the situation of infection in Japan and administrative policies, including those who are with poor physical condition other than fever.

 ②Grasp the person being at high risk of infection from time to time

    (If the person, cohabitant or relatives have recently returned from China, their situation must be checked.)


2.Provision of Information and Call Attention to the students

 ①Provision of infectious information from time to time

 ②Call attention for staffs, teachers and students wearing masks when they go out, washing hands and gargling when they return home.


3.Environment of schools and classrooms

 ①Mask and hand sanitizer are always kept in classroom

 ②Disinfect their hands before class

 ③Air purification and humidification by installing air-purifier

4.Prohibition of students, teachers, and staffs visiting China

  ①Students, teachers, and staffs must not visit China until overseas safety information from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs drops to level 1.

  ②Please refrain from the family visiting students in Japan from China.


No students are suspected of having coronavirus as of now. We will continue to thoroughly grasp the current status of students and give instructions. If someone feel wrong with their health conditions, we will respond promptly and communicate closely with parents in their home countries.


We sincerely hope things will settle down as soon as possible.
