New COVID-19 Cases Confirmed at Hokkaido University
Hokkaido University confirmed a new COVID-19 case among its students on Sunday, October 18, 2020. We conducted contact tracing within the University community by determining the date and time spent, and places visited by the student on campus. Those identified as close contacts are now placed in self-quarantine (no admittance to campus) and health monitoring for 14 days from the last date of exposure.
We wish a rapid recovery for the students while committing ourselves to safeguarding our University community from COVID-19 outbreaks.
Note: The University stresses that patient and family privacy and confidentiality must be maintained in all forms of communication by all concerned, and their human rights must be protected at all times.
