(3) When going out, be careful and try not to touch your eyes, nose, mouth, etc.

2. Health Care

(1) If minor symptoms such as a cold or fever appear, please stay in your home and do not attend classes. Also, take and record your temperature daily.

For any absences from class caused by a suspension due to the novel coronavirus you will be given alternative study methods, such as reports or additional examinations to ensure your education does not suffer.

The suspension period will last until you fully recovered. Please resume taking classes when the symptoms have stopped showing.
