April 19, 2021
26 persons affiliated with the Keio University Athletic Association, including students and other related parties, have been found to be infected after being tested for COVID-19 (coronavirus disease).
In light of this situation, the activities of the affected club are currently suspended. In addition, in line with guidance from the public health center, quarantine measures have been instigated for the students and related parties, and regular steps, including the disinfection of the facilities involved, are being performed.
While Keio University has been raising awareness among students with a view to mitigating the spread of infections on an ongoing basis, we will continue to cooperate with the public health center as we endeavor to prevent the spread of infections and marshal students, staff, and faculty members.
We ask for you kind understanding and consideration in respecting the human rights of the students and related parties who have been infected and in protecting their privacy.
