Guideline on Covid-19 response

Sep 29, 2020

For students,

  1. If you are a close contact,

You will be contacted by a health center or a store, etc. and will be asked to take PCR testing.

You will not attend school from the date of that call until the PCR test results are negative.

  1. When a roommate becomes close contact,

You will not go to school until you find your roommate’s PCR test results are negative.

  1. When a person at your part-time job (or at a cram school) becomes infected with the corona,

(1) If you are a close contact,

You will be contacted by a health center or your employer and will be asked to take PCR testing

You will not attend school from the date of that call until the PCR test results are negative.

(2) If you are not a close contact person

Talk to the school.

The school will call your part-time job to check the situation and if necessary, you can have a

PCR test done at your own expense, or you can stay home for 2 weeks.

  1. If someone in your class becomes an infected person,

The class does not come to school and will be conducted online (about 2 weeks).

*In any case, you should first consult with the school.

For teachers and staff,

  1. If you are a close contact,

You won’t go to work until the PCR test results are negative.

  1. When a family or a roommate becomes a close contact,

You won’t go to work until your family or roommate’s PCR test results come back negative.

  1. If one of the staff members becomes a close contact,

The person will not come to work until the PCR test results are negative.

Other staffs will take care of themselves and, as a general rule, come to work.

  1. If one of the staff members becomes an infected person,

  Other staffs will not come to the office and all classes will be taught online (about 2 weeks).

 

Current status of Tokyo: Under second wave

National policy: preventing the spread of infection and balancing economic and social activities (midnight businesses are permitted and Go to Travel Campaign is conducted)

Reference Guidelines: Guidelines for Elementary and Junior High Schools, Guidelines for Japanese Language Schools

Close contact is defined as a person who came into contact with an infected person at a distance of less than one meter for more than 15 minutes without taking any preventive measures against infection.

 

                                        

 

We will continue to share information thoroughly within the office, understand students’ physical condition, and support students as much as possible. In addition, we will continue to respond to them calmly and flexibly while monitoring the countermeasures and policies of the Japanese government and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

We pray from the bottom of our heart that peaceful days will return to everyone as soon as possible.
