-KCG Group's Response to New Coronavirus Infections
The number of newly infected patients with novel coronavirus infection has decreased significantly after this winter's largest-ever outbreak, and the situation has now calmed down.The standard for wearing masks indoors and outdoors was changed on March 13, 2023, and on May 8, it was decided that the new coronavirus will be classified as "Class 5" under the Infectious Disease Control Law, the same as seasonal influenza, and there have been moves to relax measures to prevent infection.
In light of this situation, the KCG Group of Kyoto Computer Gakuin, Kyoto Institute of Information Science, and Kyoto College of Automotive Technology, while continuing to place the lives and health of students and faculty members first, will focus in the spring semester of 2023 on a hybrid format in which students can choose to take classes either in person or online, with classes that involve practical training conducted in person in principle.In addition, we will continue to implement infection prevention measures to prevent the spread of infection, such as thorough disinfection of the building, installation of thermal cameras at the building entrances, wearing of masks by faculty and staff, ventilation of classrooms, and thorough disinfection of hands when entering the building.In addition, students are encouraged to wear masks on campus and to avoid "3-dense" situations: sealed, crowded, and close together.Information on infection prevention and consultation services in case of illness are disseminated, and students are encouraged to consult the office of each school if they have any concerns.
The duration and details of the measures will be determined based on the future infection situation and other factors as appropriate.
We at the KCG Group will continue to make every effort to prevent infection.
