●Notification for Novel Coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19)

A large number of patients with Novel Coronavirus have been identified. Several cases of infection have been reported in Japan as well, and there is grave concern about further expansion of Novel Coronavirus. For this reason the "Consultation desk for returnees and people in close contact with possible infected persons" has been established.

1. Before consulting the desk or a doctor, please note:
○If you have flu symptoms such as fever, refrain from going outside and don't go to school or work. ○Check your fever every date and record the temperature.

2. Who should contact the "Consultation desk for returnees and people in close contact with possible infected persons"
○People with any of these symptoms:
-Flu symptoms or fever over 37.5℃ lasting for more than 4 days (this is also valid if you have to take antipyretic drugs).
